Cat ocelot nationalgeo

An ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) poses on a tree root in Ecuador’s Amazon rainforest in 2004.

Although they are listed as a species of least concern throughout Mexico and Central and South America, they are considered endangered north of the Rio Grande in the U.S.

Males weigh on average 22 pounds (10 kilograms), while females average 19 pounds (8.6 kilograms).

      • Cool, been to the Caribbean twice now & will be going again. More recently got hooked on djembe drum, rhythmic percussion music which originated in west Africa and was carried to, given a latin/dance twist in the Caribbean nations. Have actually kinda dumped off our conventional American pop music, afro-latin percussion is so much more interesting! Cheers!

      • A good latin dance beat is good for jam/improvising drumming & practice, could do without most rap but some do have a beat that could work if I really wanted, but do love blues, New Orleans type and my spouse is a dancer type, so I’ll jam to some current pop with a strong dance beat. But mostly just listen to west African/Caribbean percussion rhythms nowadays. Gotta run …….. :~)
