The Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) also known by the name of Painted Leopard & McKenney’s Wildcat.
The Ocelot is similar in appearance to that of a domestic cat.
It’s fur is similar to that of a Clouded Leopard or a Jaguar and was once regarded as very valuable. As a result of this hundreds of thousands of Ocelots were once killed for their fur.
What a shame…….this is one of the most beautiful cats I have ever seen.
