    In his Instagram bio, the domesticated serval is described as a "pro chicken hunter", which may explain his enthusiastic reaction to the chicken drumstick.

    An owner of a serval decided to treat his exotic pet with a chicken drumstick when suddenly the wild cat showed his inner predator nature by almost biting the owner's hand instead of the raw meat, which the feline was not willing to let go of. 

    An owner of a serval, a wild cat native to Africa, decided to treat his exotic pet with a chicken drumstick when suddenly the feline revealed his true predatory nature by almost biting the owner's hand instead of the raw meat, which the feline was not willing to let go of. 

    The greedy hungry serval is no usual exotic wild pet; the animal has actually built a huge pool of Instagram followers on his page Strykerthecat, which now exceeds 150,000

    Normally, predators such as servals are found in African grasslands south of the Sahara Desert.

      Pet owners are known to argue whether a dog or a cat should be allowed in the kitchen. Those who do let their pets accompany them while cooking tend to organise a safe corner for their four-legged friends, while others oppose the mere idea of sharing kitchen time with a pet.
