SERVAL.....also called the Tierboskat, the Bush cat and  the Giraffe cat....lives along the waterways in the savannas and forests of Central and South Africa....averages 2 to 3 feet long with 1 to 2 foot tail....weighs 20 to 40 pounds....has the longest legs and largest ears for its body size of any cat....can run 45-50 miles per hour.....Ancient Egyptians worshipped the serval for its power and grace....widespread in southern Africa

I would not recommend having a Serval as a pet but a Savannah or lower. More cat like with markings.
