Have you ever heard of the oncilla? It’s a small wild cat that’s native to Central and South America. They are incredibly agile and have the ability to climb trees and jump long distances with ease, which comes in handy when they’re hunting for prey. They’re also known for their stealthy nature, which helps them avoid predators and stay hidden from their prey. And despite their small size, oncillas are fierce hunters – they’re able to take down prey that’s much larger than they are.
While it may not be as well-known as other feline species, the oncilla has some pretty unique characteristics that make it a fascinating creature to learn about.
