Mama Margay Has Her Kitten



On November 1, a margay at
Bioparque M’Bopicuá in Uruguay gave birth to the adorable kitten seen in these photos. Typical gestation is approximately eighty days and most often results in a single birth. 

The margay is a small cat native to an area ranging from southern Mexico to northern South America east of the Andes. Kittens weigh a mere three to six ounces. Adult margays are only six to nine pounds and approximately thirty inches long.

Sadly, the species is listed as “Near Threatened” on the IUCN Red List, due to loss of habitat and illegal hunting.
