African Serval

I am “Chakka,” the matron of our esteemed Serval colony.  I am proud to be a part of Bear Creek’s educational program because I like attention! My species has been kept by humans in Africa for more than 1000 years, and we are somewhat domesticated. But there is no doubt about our heritage in the wild.

“Cheetah” is one of the “stars” in our group. He retired to Bear Creek from his career in show business. He impersonated a “Cheetah” in a male revue based in Texas. Hence his name. He is paired with “Sheena”, the daughter of “Aza” and “Chakka”, two of the resident original cats when Bear Creek was just a dream. Our sweet ambassadors are usually available for some gentle petting during your tour. The Servals here at Bear Creek are very happy to get love and attention from all of our visitors.
