Thankful for our Zoo Cats!

This is our Buffalo Zoo Ocelot...

Ocelots weigh about 20 pounds- the size of a large Maine Coon.

The have that incredible rosette patterned coat. 

We were very happy he was active when we were there.
They are noctural animals and sleep most of the day.

Our Ocelot is in the Rainforest Falls Exhibit.

We love ocelots and their beautiful ears! We were surprised that they only weigh as much as a maine coon... that is really small! But powerful!!!

Have a find day.

What a gorgeous kitty! And 20 pounds - that sounds so small - heck, Floyd reached 24 at one point. I would never have guessed that - thanks for the cool info (and even cooler pics!)

Absolutely stunningly gorgeous! It's still hard for me to realize he's about the size of Dante, though.
