Full body profile of a margay

This photo gives a good view of the entire body of a margay.  Its distinctive brown leopard-like spots are distinctive.  Adult margays range from 19-31 inches (48 - 79 cm) in body length, plus a tail of 13-20 inches (33-52 cm).

Margays are expert climbers and may live their entire life in trees, jumping from one branch to another with a leaping range of about 12 feet (3.7 m).

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  This week we are showing scenes from Patagonia in Argentina.
