Throughout your journey and your decision to adopt a savannah into your home, there can be many questions along the way.
I will do my very best to answer as many questions here as possible. You can also contact us with any questions.
I always recommend
that all of our clients do sufficient research and have a good understanding of the breed, temperament, pricing, diet, laws and housing of these amazing animals.
Be sure you have read your state laws on owning a savannah
Here in the foot hills of the Ozarks we are currently breeding
F2, F5 & F6 Savannahs.
What are the Generation Numbers?
The "F" factor.
Savannahs are classed by generational numbers specifying how many generations they are removed form the African Serval ancestry.
F1= Serval parent & Savannah Parent
Creating kittens around 63%- 80% Serval.
F2= Serval is Grandparent to Kitten
Creating around 25% to 37.5% Serval
F3= Great Grand Parent is a Serval
Creating around12.5% Serval.
And So on.
That said, there is no know testing to determine the exact amount of Serval genetics passed to the kittens. The percentages above are researched estimations.
