African golden cat - The African golden cat (Caracal aurata) is little known by science, but is the subject of much tribal superstition in many parts of Africa. Pygmy tribes in Cameroon carry the tail of the African golden cat when hunting elephants to ensure good fortune, and the skin is used in some areas during circumcision rituals. The African golden cat is about twice the size of a large domestic cat and is robustly built with a short tail. (text from arkive.org)
