Big Cat
Territory

Ocelot

The Ocelot is the largest of the small spotted cats, and is mostly nocturnal and very territorial.

Twice the size of the average house cat, the ocelot is a sleek animal with a gorgeous dappled coat.

It will fight fiercely, sometimes to the death, in territorial disputes. The Ocelot is well equipped for an arboreal lifestyle and will sometimes take to the trees. The ocelot was once hunted for its beautiful coat but is now internationally protected.

DID YOU KNOW? Ocelots capture on average of one prey item for every 3.1 hours of travel!
