The Safari is a cat-hybrid, which results from the crossing of the small spotted cat (salt cat, rarely also called Geoffroy cat, Leopardus geoffroyi or Oncifelis geoffroyi) with the domestic cat. This is remarkable, because the small spotted cat has 18 chromosome pairs, but the domestic cat has 19 chromosome pairs.
