Black-footed Gerbil Hunter

"Young male Pogon swallows a bushveld gerbil in one go." A. Sliwa

The appetite of the Black-footed Cat is extraordinary, and they are capable of killing prey larger than themselves. Like many small creatures, they must consume 1/5 of their bodyweight in one night. Their diet consists of mammals (72%) and birds (26%) with only 2% falling to insects, spiders and reptiles.
