I think this may be the first ocelot “photo” to be uploaded onto RB (at least all I found in the search was some lovely portraits by Dawn Davies). Ocelots aren’t willing models as they seem to sleep all day, but I persevere. The ocelots originate from South America but numbers in the wild are very low due to hunting for their fur and habitat destruction. This ocelot lives at Marwell Zoo, England.

    She looks sad to me…
    Love her pink nose… nice shot Krys. How cool is that, to be the first to post a photo of a beautiful ocelot.

  • They always have that sulky expression! Probably get fed up with people waking them up during the day! ;o)

    Ocelots are my favorite wild cat – they’re so beautiful! And who can resist those big eyes. :)
