|“||No, I don't! I jumped up here to catch a bird, but it flew away. And I'm not as good at jumping down as I am at jumping up.||”|
–Serval, Beshte and the Beast
Servals have short tails, long legs, and small heads in relation to their size. They have large, distinctive ears. Servals have tawny fur with black spots covering most of their body, and black stripes on their back and tail.
Servals are nocturnal hunters. Their diet consists of rodents, reptiles, birds, fish, and other small animals. They are solitary animals, and will defend their territories. During a hostile confrontation, servals will bare their teeth, flatten their ears, and arch their backs. They can make a wide range of sounds, including purrs, grunts, hisses, and meows. Servals are excellent jumpers.
Ono the egret spots an unnamed Male Serval hanging onto the edge of Big Ravine after attempting to jump across it. Fuli rushes in and, despite the serval panicking and almost kicking her by accident, she manages rescues the serval. Realising he is safely on the other side, he thanks her before running away.
A serval unintentionally got himself stuck on Laini's Tree while chasing a bird before asking Beshte and Shujaa for help. Shujaa manages to get the serval back to the ground by lowering the branch the latter is holding onto, but when the gorilla releases the branch, he accidentally flung Laini's Group to another tree.
