The curious caracal that Capetonians have come to know and love is back again, and this time little Hermes was spotted out on the hunt.
While watching a Cape grey mongoose make its way along the path in Echo Valley on Table Mountain, hikers got more of a show than they were expecting.
It turns out the hikers were not the only ones watching the mongoose, as Hermes jumped from his stalking spot in the bush and caught the unsuspecting animal right in front of them.
According to the Urban Caracal Project, this is an exceptional and rare sighting.
