ABOUT THE OCELOT:

“There are an estimated 50 ocelots that remain in the United States (including a breeding population at Laguna Atascosa Wildlife Refuge).

Ocelots are different from most other cat species in that they can turn their ankle joints around which allows them to literally climb ‘down’ a tree. This important self-defense mechanism lets them escape from predators like mountain lion or bobcat, species of cats that cannot retract their claws (and must figure out how to get out of the tree they just climbed). Unlike most other cats, ocelots are also good swimmers.

These small cats need a lot of space. Male ocelots typically have a territory of about 25 square miles, while the females’ territory is around nine square miles. To warn other ocelots to stay away, they mark their territories in many ways, including spraying urine or leaving feces. Males in particular are very protective of their territories and will defend them to the death.

In South Texas, the ocelots’ diet consists mostly of rabbits, mice, rats and birds. They are nocturnal and like to travel under the cover of darkness...”
