The Bengal, Chausie, Highland Lynx, and the Savannah originated from hybridizing a domestic and an exotic feline species. With the Bengals it is the Asian leopard cat, the Chausie is the Jungle Cat, Highland Lynx is the Bobcat, with the savannah’s it is the African serval. It is much harder getting the savannah’s than the Bengals and Chausies thus the huge price difference. It seems very few of the Highland Lynx have pedigrees that go back to the Bobcat however my Bobo's does. The hybrids all have individual personalities and inherited temperament from their exotic heritage. I specialize in bottle raised f2 Savannah kittens as I feel there is no feline that can compare to the bottle raised and well socialized f2 Savannah Cat.
The f1 is the largest with the boldest markings like it's exotic sire and it decreases as the percentage of wild blood and generations go down. Because the serval is such a docile exotic, the early generation kittens from a serval make great pets. This isn't always the case with the other early generation hybrids.
BUYER BEWARE!!! There is an abundance of scammers these days. They are mostly Nigerian and Cameroon pet scammers. They steal photos from Savannah breeders and advertise their kittens at ridiculously low prices to entice potential pet owners to quickly purchase the kitten without doing the proper research on their cattery. They actually don't have catteries for the most part. One way to protect yourself is ask for additional photos of the kitten you are interested in. This is an example of one of those sites. One of those photos were stolen from me and they have this kitten listed for $300. http://www.felines4us.com/Kittens/Savannahforsale.aspx
If you are considering purchasing a Savannah kitten, please check out my website and available kittens. I've raised and shown cats for 23 years. I've won many awards during the show years. I currently just raise kittens I sell as pets as I feel those are the homes I want my bottle babies to live out their lives in. I'm an honest person and hate to see anyone being 'taken'. The most important thing in all this is the quality of pet you get. If you get something too unsocialized to live peacefully in your home, what have you gained?
