Ocelot "Leopardus pardalis"

Type: Dog
Age: Adult

The ocelot (Leopardus pardalis),
also known as painted leopard, tigrillo or McNenney's wildcat, is a wild cat distributed over South and Central America and Mexico, but has been reported as far north as Texas and in Trinidad, in the Caribbean. It can be up to 100 cm (3'2") in length, plus 45 cm (1'6") tail length, and weighs 10-15 kg [IMG](about 20-33 pounds). While similar in appearance to the oncilla and the margay, who inhabit the same region, the ocelot is larger. It should be noted that ocelots are often called "tigrillo" in Mexico. This word, which means little tiger, is also used to describe margays, and should not be used when trying to speak of one determinated species.

The ocelot is mostly nocturnal and very territorial. They will fight fiercely, sometimes to the death, in territorial disputes. Like most felines, they are solitary, usually meeting only to mate. However, during the day they rest in trees or other dense foliage, and will occasionally share their spot with another ocelot of the same gender. When mating, the female will find a den in a cave in a rocky bluff, a hollow tree, or a dense (preferably thorny) thicket. The gestation period is estimated to be 70 days. Generally the female will have 2-4 kittens, born in the autumn with their eyes closed and a thin covering of hair.

While ocelots are well equipped for an arboreal lifestyle, and will sometimes take to the trees, they are mostly terrestrial. Prey includes almost any small animal: monkeys, snakes, rodents, fish, amphibians and birds are common prey, as are small domestic animals such as baby pigs and poultry. Almost all of the prey that the ocelot hunts is far smaller than itself. Studies suggest that they follow and find prey via odour trails, but ocelots also have very keen vision, including night vision.

They are occasionally kept as pets.

Your leopard cat is so cute. You said this type is a dog in your thread. I didn't think sim dogs can scratch on scratching posts.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Ah - one of the many wild cats I wish to one day work with. So far I've only been able to work with the larger of the cat species, including leopards and tigers. Ocelots are so cute and elegant. Their slim figure and those spots which seems to make them appear to have a "streamlined" look as if they're a running blur at a stand still. This download seems to capture that elegance.

Great job!
