Attentive oncilla

Oncilla (Leopardus tigrinus), also known as the little spotted cat, tigrillo, or tiger cat, is a small spotted cat native to montane and tropical rainforests of Central and South America.

Colocolo cat. Native to West Andean, central and Northern Chile.

The colocolo is a small spotted and striped cat native to the west Andean slope in central and northern Chile. Until recently, it included the more widespread Pampas cat and Pantanal cat, and some maintain these as subspecies of the colocolo.

Oncilla (Leopardus tigrinus) Reports in 1972 and 1982 in South America showed that the Oncilla is one of the four most heavily hunted of all the small cats. Another factor contributing to Oncilla mortality is human expansion, settling what was once open terrain for wild cats. Coffee plantations are most often established in cloud forest habitats, causing the reduction of preferred habitats.
