The Ocelot is found in South and Central America. As you can see, they resemble a smaller version of the Jaguar, weighing between 18 and 40 pounds. They are nocturnal and fiercely territorial, sometimes fighting to the death. They frequently spend their days up in trees, that is of course until it is time to deliver death from above. They dine on various small mammals, reptiles, birds and fish. In captivity they can live as long as 20 years.
In addition to capturing the Ocelot, there was a recent Sabre-Toothed Cat sighting on eBay. This is of course the rarest of all the cats, and I assumed it might be a bit pricey. The list price on the auction? - $3,000 or best offer. I'll let Geoff Peterson sum up my reaction. Geoff?....
Thank you, Geoff.
Now I know that just because it is listed for $3000 doesn't mean that it's really worth that, but still, not a good sign for my chances of adding that one to the collection.
