    Nice report! I saw a Caracal in Israel in April 2008, while we were spotlighting for Nubian Nightjar near Néot Hakikar. The animal sat in a bush, it stayed there as we stopped the car, and we had great views. Good luck next time!

    Nice Simon.. you lucky f***! 🙂

    I will see one this year. It’s just a matter of looking for them enough time. I just went for 2.5 hours but I’m planning a trip with my friend throughout Israel to see onagers, oryx, gazelles, ibex and also hopefully caracals and hyenas, all in the desert. So we are going to prime habitats, and hopefully I will have some good new 🙂

    There is a small mammals research lab in Mitzpe Ramon – they might give you good tips on things like gerbil colonies etc.
