Margay

The margay (Leopardus Wiedii) is a small wild cat native to Mexico, Central, and South America. It's listed a near threatened since 2008, due to hunting and loss of habitat. Like most South American mammals, margays are found in every South American country except Chile. It's sometimes called the tree ocelot because of its ability. In 1852, the margay was declared extinct in Texas. During the Pleistocene, the margay lived in Florida and Georgia.
