"Caracal-Minton" is the twenty-sixth episode of Season One of PBS Kids show, Wild Kratts. It was written and directed by Martin Kratt. It is the twenty-sixth episode of the series overall, and premiered on April 2, 2012.


The Wild Kratts Crew has a badminton tournament. While Chris and Martin are playing, a caracal steals Aviva's birdie, causing her to break down in tears. And this is no ordinary birdie – it is Aviva's precious family heirloom. Chris and Martin reassure her that they will find it, and try to find the caracal. When they do, Chris encourages Aviva to build a guinea fowl flapper, because guinea fowls are what the caracal likes to eat. She gets the inspiration to build one. On the way, Chris and Martin get captured by the same caracal that took their birdie, which they name Hang Time. When they get there, they face two caracal kittens who want to eat them. They get their birdie back but when a caracal kitten named Pouncemore gets dropped in the middle of the Namibian savanna after the brothers release him from the talons of a spotted eagle owl, they must use caracal creature powers and take him back to his home before hyenas find him.
