F1 and F2 in the context of Savannah cats refer to different generations of hybridization between servals (a wild African cat species) and domestic cats. Here's a breakdown of the difference between F1 and F2 Savannah cats:
F1 Savannah Cat:
An F1 Savannah cat is the first generation offspring resulting from the crossbreeding of a serval and a domestic cat.
F1 Savannahs have a serval parent and a domestic cat parent.
They typically exhibit a higher percentage of serval traits and characteristics compared to subsequent generations.
F1 Savannahs tend to have a more wild appearance, with long legs, large ears, and distinct coat patterns similar to servals.
They are often larger in size compared to domestic cats and have a more energetic and active nature.
Due to the high serval influence, F1 Savannahs require specialized care, including an appropriate environment and a knowledgeable owner.y similar to servals, while F2s have a slightly lower serval percentage and may display a blend of serval and domestic cat characteristics
F2 Savannah Cat:
An F2 Savannah cat is the second generation resulting from breeding an F1 Savannah with a domestic cat.
F2 Savannahs have an F1 Savannah parent (which has a serval parent) and a domestic cat parent.
F2 Savannahs have a slightly lower percentage of serval genes compared to F1s.
While they still retain some serval traits, they tend to have a slightly more domesticated appearance compared to F1s.
F2 Savannahs are generally smaller in size compared to F1s, but larger than regular domestic cats.
They may display a range of personalities, some leaning towards the more active and energetic side, while others may exhibit more domestic cat traits.
Overall, the primary difference between F1 and F2 Savannah cats lies in their generation and the percentage of serval genes they possess. F1s have a higher serval influence and are more visually similar to servals, while F2s have a slightly lower serval percentage and may display a blend of serval and domestic cat characteristics
