Ocelot or, how it’s called in the Sauth America, Tigrillo is a small wild cat. Scientists are also calling it a dwarf leopard.

Ocelots are living in the jungles and dense forests of Central and South America. They are approximately two to three times bigger than the average house cat. They are spending daytime sleeping on the tree branches. When the night falls, ocelots are becoming the hunters, merciless predators leaving no chance for the rodents, lizards and frogs that were unhappy to cross their path.
