Cat House

(Leopardus wiedii glaucula)
sign A United States endangered species, overall in the wild listed as Least Concern. Margays resemble a young ocelot. While still possible to find their pelts on the black market, they are no longer trapped in large numbers for the commercial fur trade, and the 4,000,000 square kilometer Amazon basin rainforests provide a substantial refuge buffering against losses due to deforestation elsewhere. Agile climbers with flexible ankles - check out Maggie on a limb - they can climb down a tree head-first like a squirrel.
