This oncilla (Leopardus tigrinus), otherwise known as a little spotted cat or tiger cat, gazes from the bars of a cage after being rescued from poachers in Peru in 2009.

Listed as vulnerable, these cats can be found throughout South America and into Central America. Adults weigh between three and seven pounds (1.5 and 3 kilograms).
