About the African Wildcat
Also known as the Near Eastern Wildcat, the African Wildcat is a wildcat sub-species. We carry a variety of wildcat taxidermy mounts. It mainly resides in Northern Africa, the Near East and around the periphery of the Arabian Peninsula. The fur color of the African wildcat is light sandy gray. It can also sometimes be a pale yellow or a reddish hue. Around the pinna on the ear are long pale yellow hairs. There are dark stripes on the face, two that run horizontally on the cheek and four to six across the throat. A dark stripe runs along the cat’s back. The belly is whitish in color. They primarily eat mice, rats, birds, reptiles, and insects. When in danger the African Wildcat will raise its hair to make itself larger and more intimidating.
