We all know how cold and vicious cats can be. They may appear peaceful and adorable on the surface, but inside each of them is a fire that will turn them into ruthless hunters. Domesticated moggies can hunt, although not as well as wild moggies. We couldn’t say the same for African black-footed cats. They may seem like your domestic cat, yet they are among nature’s worst murderers.
This species’ adult cats weigh between 2 and 5 pounds and stand 14 to 20 inches tall. It has the appearance of a domestic cat yet the fury of a lion. You still don’t trust us? Take a look at the video below. Gyra, a black-footed cat, stalks a bird in the film. The food of these wild cats includes anything from scorpions to gerbils to birds. They are one of the top hunters in the savannah, with almost 60% of their hunts being successful.
They can traverse roughly 20 miles per night, which is the longest distance for tiny cats, in addition to being extremely dangerous.
The African black-footed cat is another another powerful example of the proverb “don’t judge a book by its cover.” It has the appearance of a cat, yet it is just as lethal as its bigger counterparts.
