        Caracal-Minton | Wild Kratts

        Join Chris and Martin as they leap into another Creature Adventure and explore the jumping abilities of the caracal! In this full episode with accompanying clips, the Wild Kratts crew is playing badminton on the African savannah when this high-jumping wildcat steals the birdie. And this is no ordinary birdie--it is Aviva's precious family heirloom. As they rush to get back the treasure from an elusive, leaping caracal cat, they learn how the caracal's musculature is specifically designed for stalking and leaping--a perfect example of the concept of "form for function." Inspired by this, Aviva perfects the caracal power for the Creature Power Suit and leaps off to retrieve her special birdie and rescue some caracal kittens who get into trouble along the way. Learn how the caracal can leap high enough into the air to catch prey such as the guinea fowl.
