About Servals

A1 Savannahs has been breeding Servals for over 27 Years and most of the world's Savannah-producing Servals are coming from our lines.

Many Servals that we have bred can also be seen in Zoos and Animal Parks throughout the country.

The Serval In Nature

Servals are found throughout the savannahs of Africa, where the grass is tall. The cat's long legs allow it to walk easily through the vegetation. His large ears help him to locate his favorite prey - the small rodents hiding in the grass.

Servals catch their prey by leaping and landing on their victims with both front paws. Servals can jump up to 10 feet in the air and catch a bird in flight. They are also good swimmers, tree climbers, and exceptionally great runners.

A Serval is solitary by nature and will roam up to 4 square miles which it claims as its own territory.

The Serval In Captivity

A Serval is a wild animal and doesn't make a good pet. The wild cat will live up to 20 years old and needs zoo-like outside/inside facilities with a large enough exercise area to run, a pool in which to swim and dive, and an area with lots of climbing possibilities. Servals will escape from anything that is not totally secure and are unlikely to return once having escaped. Servals are solitary by nature and like to travel many miles when hunting.

At A1 Savannahs, we have invested thousands of dollars constructing a completely secure and extensive outside environment for our Servals. Their facilities include a 2200 square foot fenced area which includes access to part of our natural pond.

They require a special diet with vitamin supplements and special health care.

Even if hand-raised and tamed, a Serval will never be a "lap cat".

Permit To Own A Serval

Many states require a permit and have guidelines for the size and type of cage that they need. Check with your state and local authorities.

Serval Kittens

We breed Serval kittens for our own breeding program or experienced people that have appropriate facilities and permits.

If you are looking for a pet and are attracted to the look of a Serval, we recommend that you consider purchasing a Savannah Cat, which is a cross between an African Serval and a domestic cat.
