Haylee Smith Is Most Excited to See a Margay!

This cute little cat. I find it cool (and cute) because it supposedly can race up and down trees like squirrels.

I agree with Haylee - this cat is one you would like take home with you but in spite of it's size and cuteness it can be vicious. It is closely related to the Ocelot.

  1. Margays live in moist forests in Central and South America,. They live within the tress just like squirrels. They are often considered the wizards of the treetops. Unfortunately, margays are endangered because of deforestation, poaching, and people catching them to have as pets. It is illegal to hunt a margay in most countries in Central and South America.
