"cal" command question


When using the "cal" command to view a monthly calendar - Is there a way to get it to show the current date highlighted??
Other distros installed does this by default for me and I don't quite know how to get it here.

Not sure about "cal" but "gcal" highlights the current date.

Interestingly, when I type cal in a console and press enter, the current date is highlighted. Maybe something in man cal?
