Ocelots are active primarily at night so if you visit during the day, you may witness an adorable ocelot naptime. In the daytime, ocelots sleep hidden among bushes, inside hollow trees, or on tree branches (as you can see). These colorful cats need places to hide in order to survive, and will leave if the vegetative cover is cut down in their habitat. Our ocelots hope to see you soon!
