I agree with Brigitte as far as the breed standard goes and since we really cannot see the legs, cannot comment on those :)

Unfortunately, the pics that you have posted aren't really at angles that can help us see a lot. I do like his ear shape and size, and his tail looks nice and thick. The eyes are too big/round and lack hooding. I can't see his profile well in any of the pics but he does seem to have a muzzle pinch - a Savannah's head should be triangular and smooth in shape. I also can't tell anything about neck, body, or leg length. You can view a pictorial review of the breed standard here, which might help you know what to look for: http://www.savannahbreedsection.org/pdf/magnificant-savannah-web-presentation.pdf

Of course he is a kitten and could change quite a bit in the coming months. I look forward to seeing him grow up here! :)

This link is unbelieveably helpful! I have always been at loss as to what the heck boomerang eyes were supposed to look like! and the various pictures at the end are great! You can tell by these pictures that savannahs are indeed dangerous wild animals! :rolleyes:
