The Jaguatirica (Leopardus pardalis or Felis pardalis) has the appearance is similar to that of the domestic cat. Its fur resembles that of a Jaguar and as a result, hundreds of thousands of Ocelots have been killed for their fur. It can be up to 1 m in length, plus 45 cm tail length, and weighs about16 kg, making it the largest of the generally dainty Leopardus wild cat genus. The Jaguatirica is mostly nocturnal and very territorial. It will fight fiercely, sometimes to the death, in territorial disputes. In addition, the Jaguatirica marks its territory with especially pungent urine. Like most felines, it is solitary, usually meeting only to mate. The Jaguatirica will sometimes take to the trees and hunt  mostly small mammals, reptiles and amphibians (lizards, turtles and frogs), crab, birds and fish. Studies suggest that it follows and finds prey via odor trails, but the Jaguatirica also has very good vision, including night vision. The white rings around the Jaguatirica’s eyes help to reflect extra light into the eye at night.
