17 inches tall

The serval is a slender, medium-sized cat ; it stands 54 to 62 cm (21–24 in) at the shoulder and weighs 8 to 18 kg (18–40 lb), but females tend to be lighter. The head-and-body length is typically between 67 and 100 cm (26–39 in). Males tend to be sturdier than females.
To answer the question, Savannah cats aren’t dangerous but they can be destructive if they feel boredom. Savannah cats ‘wildness’ tends to water down with each generation called Filial Generation. F1 generation cat will retain more wild instincts than F5 generation Savannah cat .
Servals are illegal and considered a Dangerous Wild Animal. The savannah must be the fourth or later filial generation of offspring with the first filial generation being the offspring of a domestic cat and a serval , and each subsequent generation being the offspring of a domestic cat .
F2 Savannahs: Much like your F1 Savannah your F2’s will also need a lot of time put in to keep that loving and affectionate personality. Although your second generation Savannahs are a little more laid back and they enjoy their cuddle time on the sofa, and that playtime in the shower.
Once they hold them or incapacitate them with their weight, they usually deliver a fatal bite to the neck. Servals are considered the best hunters in the cat world, with a nearly 50% kill rate.
I would say both of these cats are easily strong enough that if they really wanted to, they could kill the dog . If we include breeds that are hybrids between domestic and wild cats , then the Savannah , a hybrid between domestic cats and servals, can reach 30 lbs.
Massachusetts and Georgia , like New York, have strict bans against pets like the Savannah, while other states like Illinois and Arizona have restrictions but do not completely prohibit the animal. Some states require owners to obtain permits for part-wild pets.
You may want to feed them regular cat food but most types are not well suited to these cats . Use only premium cat food kibble such as IAMS or Orijin, which is 75% meat based. By the time the Serval is about six months old they may be eating as much as a full can of food per day or a combination of dry and wet food .
Size of an F5 Savannah Cat Like the F3’s and F4’s, the F5 females will fall in a 10-12 pound range and measure slightly larger than a typical domestic cat . They will be taller and lankier in their body type. Most F5 males will fall in a 14-18 pound range.
Running Away If your Savannah cat has been an inside cat since they were a kitten, there’s a good chance they will run away at the first opportunity they get.
