I believe these to be Bobcats. The original photo is not identified. Bobcats are a lot like a small lynx-looking North American wild cat. They have the ear tufts and often a small ruff of fur on the sides of the face. Spots are common.
The Caracal (aka desert lynx) is a wild cat widely distributed across Africa, central Asia and SW Asia into India. The felid is considered threatened in north Africa, and rare in the central Asian republics and India.
