NEWSLINK: Serval cat makes Milwaukee County Zoo debut

Leptailurus serval - ausgewachsener Serval.jpgIf visitors don't notice the black spots and stripes first, they definitely see the ears.
Amos' ears seem way too big for his head but then servals, a cat at home on the African savannah, are known for the appendages that seem almost like furry satellite dishes protruding from their heads.

"If (humans) had ears their size, they would be the size of dinner plates," said Sheri Guay, a zookeeper in the Milwaukee County Zoo's Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country.
The Milwaukee County Zoo hasn't had a serval since 1993. On Thursday, Amos, a 9-year-old male born in captivity in Idaho, was formally introduced to zoo visitors.
