  2. So gorgeous! What was the food in question? Posted 2 months ago
    1. Yes she was. They bait with bits of chicken in niches in the dead branches. We were lucky & she came over the 3 nights we were there + cub (plenty of mozzies - mosquitos), but not for the 3 nights before we arrived. 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.
