    1. I'm just lucky with Ocelots, it seems. I asked our guide Raul & he said it was the 1st non-fed/lured Ocelot he'd seen in 5 years. He had to be shown my photos of it crossing the highway to believe me. Posted 2 months ago

The ocelot, also known as the dwarf leopard, is a wild cat distributed extensively over South America, Central America, and Mexico. They have been reported as far north as Texas, and as far east as Trinidad and Barbados in the Caribbean. North of Mexico, they are found regularly only in the extreme southern part of Texas, although there are rare sightings in southern Arizona.
