I was curious about the caracal by Playvisions that was made in 1998. I have seen pictures of it but I do not know where to find one. Does anyone have a link to an online store that still carries it?

I have one, they are hard to find, the last place I knew they were for sale is out of stock and as you know they haven't been made for quite a while. PM me I may know where to find one or even sell mine if the price is right.

Sergey, the Chap Mei caracal is actally a caracal painted like a serval. Caracals are solid golden with a very little black on the face, tip of the tail and the tips of the ears, no spots.

That is a really nice set, do they make other sets of animals? Thanks for the photos, I love seeing what is available and what figures others are keeping.

That last photo is very interesting, I have 3 caracals as pets, a male and female plus one of their kittens (who is now 3 years old and not a kitten any more) and my male makes that face a lot. Most people who don't know cats think this is an aggressive pose or a threat but in fact it is a male sniffing the scent of a female to see how receptive she is to mating. It is called a flehman reaction and it is how he analysis the scents of the female that he is near. In wild cats an open mouth is almost never a sign of aggression, it can be defensive if it is cornered but mostly it is just a signal that he is not threatening another cat.

How much would you charge for the caracal? :)

that's very interesting Phil - you are so lucky to have them as pets, could you share some pictures with us, I'd love to see them?

I don't breed them but a caracal kitten can cost about $800 to $1000 for a captive born hand raised kitten. Wild ones are available for a lot less but it isn't easy to tame them. I have seen them for as cheap as $300. There are permits required to keep cats like this and you have to live in states where they are legal to keep, many states don't or won't issue a permit.

When I got sick I had to put all of my pets into other homes, hopefully when I get better and can take care of exotics I will get certian ones back. Sometimes while out and around I do go and visit, I have posted photos in the past of some of them, I'll take a look and see what photos I have and post them.

I am not sure I want to sell it, but PM me and make an offer. I am open to trades but I only collect the Japanese toys like Bandai, ChocoQ, Kaiyodo, Gashpon and the other similar figures.

I cannot trade because almost all my animals are made by Safari, and K&M. I have a few Schleich and Papo animals, but I'm sure you do not want any of those.
