Apparently Laser Sound FX Were Inspired by Baby Caracals
Today I learned that baby caracals sound like lasers (if they made a sound). You know, like the kind of laser sound FX you’d hear in Star Trek or Star Wars. Here are some additional facts about caracals:
Caracals (Caracal caracal) are a medium-sized wild cat native to Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, and India. They are characterised by a robust build, long legs, a short face, long tufted ears, and long canine teeth. Its coat is uniformly reddish tan or sandy, while the ventral parts are lighter with small reddish markings. It reaches 40–50 cm (16–20 in) at the shoulder and weighs 8–18 kg (18–40 lb).
Because the Internet is amazing someone of course has added the prerequisite laser FX to the video above, which you can see below, enjoy.
