African WIldcat (Felis lybica griselda)

I was lucky to see this Wildcat early enough in the evening in order to get some great shots of it. As they are nocturnal, it is usually too dark and one does not get close enough to use a flash.

Hi Joan, excellent shots. It looks like a domestic cat. We often see wild cat here in the Mwadui bush, but it's always too dark and the cat scats before I can focus my camera!
