The serval is an unusual looking cat due to its lengthy legs and head. These characteristics help the serval traverse through tall brush in the savannah while hunting.
- At night or in dense grass, servals rely on their large ears and excellent hearing to pinpoint the prey.
- Servals rely on their fur coat for camouflage as they stalk prey and avoid predators.
- Servals catch their prey in over half of their attempts, making them a very successful hunter.
