O is for Ocelot

The Ocelot is considered one of 3 rare cats that live in the Sonoran Desert and it is currently listed as endangered.

It is somewhat bigger than a large house cat and is often referred to as one of the most beautiful of cats.

The Ocelot is primarily a nocturnal creature and stays close to dense cover during the day. Sightings of this animal in the Sonoran Desert tend to be very rare. So rare in fact, that biologists investigate and keep track of any sightings.
