and bobcats (Lynx rufus) are sympatric from southern Texas to southern Mexico (Rolley, 1987; Tewes and Schmidly, 1987).
In the llanos, the ocelot
(Leopardus pardalis) and crab-eating fox (Cerdocyon thous) each average about six to 10 kg in body weight, the puma about 40 to 50 kg, and the jaguar up to 100 kg (Figure 1).
Kaemmerer is the coordinator of the Ocelot
Species Survival Plan -- a cooperative effort of American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA)-accredited institutions whose goal is to save endangered species through captive breeding, habitat preservation, public education, and supportive research.
Restoration efforts are of major importance because they not only expand ocelot
habitat, but also more than 95 percent of the native vegetation found in the landscape remains under threat.
This rarity of smaller cats in the presence of ocelots
is congruent with other studies by Di Bitetti et al.
Here, biologists are working on behalf of the ocelot
Most of the studies of food habits of ocelots
in tropical systems have included consideration of competitive relationships (e.
LPPV has been designed to provide unprecedented levels of blast protection for a vehicle of its size and will be able to carry a crew of up to six people.
A recent capture of an ocelot
at our site indicates that ocelots
do occur at WWS, but do so at low abundances or very infrequently, especially relative to margays (A.
These include the rodent Mountain Paca Cuniculus taczanowskii (Stolzmann 1865), the Ocelot
will be joining some 130 different species of animal currently resident at the centre, which plans an important role in captive breeding schemes.
Study site: we studied ocelots
on Barro Colorado Island (BCI), Panama (9[degrees]10' N, 79[degrees]51' W).
