Since I can't travel to Africa or other places to see exotic animals in the wild, the  best I can do is either the zoo or a wildlife rescue center. I love going to these places and seeing the wild animals and I especially love the wildcats. On one of my trips to the Oklahoma City Zoo, I came across this beautiful cat called a serval. It is a small wildcat of Africa and is closely related to the Golden cat and the caracal but has some very unique traits. Learn more about this beautiful African wildcat with information, photos and video.
