Keen Smell. A caracal has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.
Pounce. If a caracal moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a claw attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 11 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the caracal can make one bite attack against it as a bonus action.
Running Leap. With a 10-foot running start, a caracal can long jump up to 20 feet.
