26 Margay

Image

The margay is found in the forests of Mexico, the Amazon Basin, Argentina, Uruguay, Belize and Brazil. The margay is right in between the Ocelot and the Oncilla in size. The margay is primarily arboral and refuses to cross open fields. It is the only cat to possess the ability to rotate its hind legs 180° , enabling it to run head first down trees like squirrels. The margay can also hang from a branch by one hind foot. They are exceedingly quick, and even during a fall they can grab hold of a branch with one front or hind paw and climb up again.

10 Serval

Image

The serval is a medium-sized species of cat that is found throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Proportionately, the serval is the cat with the longest legs and the largest ears. The serval’s sensitive hearing allows it to locate small mammals moving through the grass or underground, and to hunt its prey sometimes without seeing it until the final pounce. ears of the Serval allow them to sense the vibrations of rodents that are even underground and once detected, the Serval will dig it's prey out using it's sharp claws.The serval has one of the highest hunting success rates with a success chance of 50%, compared to domestic cats which have a 10% chance. The serval is also the wild cat ancestor of the savannah breed of cats.

21 Jaguar

Image

The jaguar is the largest cat in the Americas and the third largest cat in the world. The jaguar makes its home in southern and central America and at one time their range was as far north as the southern United States. The jaguar's spots are unique because the spots form circles called rosettes and unlike other spotted cats the jaguar has more spots inside the rosettes. The jaguar has the strongest bite of all the cats. This enables the jaguar to kill their prey differently than other cats. Most cats kill by going for the neck while jaguars are able to pierce skulls with their strong bite.

19 Pallas's Cat

The Pallas' Cat also known as the manul is the size of a domestic cat but appears larger because of its stocky size and incredibly dense coat of fur. This cat is found in Central Asia, from the Caspian Sea through Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and northern India to central China, Mongolia and southern Russia. The prefer the cold and arid environments of rocky steppes and grasslands at elevations up to about 15,000 feet. The Pallas cat has the longest and densest fur of any cat.

Sorry for the lack of communication. The events of last Thursday mean that I've been spending a lot of time on Facebook trying to grasp the enormity of the vote. I still think I'm in a bad dream :(
Anyway, beautiful pictures of gorgeous cars and I, too am on 6!

17 Colocolo

Image

The colocolo is a small wild cat from Chile. Until recently, Pampas and Pantanal cats (one of the breeds I cut from the list) were regarded as subspecies of colocolo.

Links for more about the colocolo:

1 Cheetah

Image

The cheetah is found in parts of eastern, central and southwestern Africa and a small portion of Iran. The cheetah is the fastest land animal going from 0 to 96 km/h (60 mph) in three seconds. They are not able to sprint for very long, usually being able to maintain that speed for only 20 seconds. The cheetah uses its tail to help steer and maintain balance while changing direction while running. The cheetah is unusual for a cat because they have poor night vision. Because of this and to avoid competition from larger animals like lions, cheetahs prefer to hunt at mid day.

Links for more about the cheetah:

3 Clouded Leopard

Image

The clouded leopard is the smallest of the "big cats" family being only a medium sized cat. They are found from Nepal through Indochina, Sumatra and Borneo. They are named for their clouded coat appearance but are not closely related to the leopard. The tree climbing talents of the clouded rival that of the Margay, running down trees head-first and climbing branches horizontally with its back towards the ground, and even hangs upside down by its hind legs. They are also quite adept at swimming and readily take to water.

4 Caracal

Image

The caracal is a medium sized cat found in Africa and part of the middle-east. The name Caracal is derived from a Turkish word “karakulak” meaning “black ear.” These cats are also sometimes called the desert lynx. The Caracal was once trained for bird hunting in Iran and India. They were put into arenas containing a flock of pigeons, and wagers were made as to how many the cat would take down. This is the origination of the expression “to put a cat amongst the pigeons.” The Caracal is capable of leaping into the air and knocking down 10-12 birds at one time.

Bingo is so much fun, even when I don't win (but winning is fun, too). I will be working on some Bingo ideas and will try to post them before I go on vacation. The game won't start until mid-July at the earliest, so maybe that will give us time to get lots of players.

I received my prize - a lovely kit I've been eyeing for awhile now. It's called Leap of Faith, by Bucilla, and I love it. Thank you!!!!

And just to let you all know...I've been focused on getting ready for my vacation and haven't had a chance to pick a topic for the Bingo I'll be hosting. Sorry. But I will be posting the topic and numbers when I get back, so stay tuned.

First, I am not a flake - I have't forgotten about Bingo. Now that my vacation is over :-( I am going to try to come up with something fun - or at least something. :-)

Second, I have to show off the needle minders that were part of my prize. Aren't they fabulous?? Doctor Who and patriotic - perfect for this Doctor fan/mom of two Air Force officers.
