This Margay Cat (c) never stopped walking up and down the limbs in it's enclosure at the La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Margay Cats are small wild cats that spend most of their lives up in the trees. Often confused with their slightly large cousins the Ocelot's they have specialized ankle joints that allow the Margay to make 180 degree turns on the branches of trees and lets them move through the treetops very much like squirrels do where as Ocelots rarely leave the ground.
