      ISIS does not list a single North American zoo with jaguarundi, and I have only seen one in my life and it was a female at the Emperor Valley Zoo in Trinidad and Tobago. It is interesting that there is a zoo in Guatemala that has 9 and another zoo in Sao Paulo (Brazil) that is listed as having 12. That would be a sight to see!

      There are four jaguarundis in the United States. A mated pair (one red, one gray) kept off exhibit at Project Survival Cat Haven in Central California and two of their offspring (one red, one gray) on public display at Feline Conservation Center (also known as Exotic Feline Breeding Compound) in southern California. The cages and visitor facilities at Feline Center leave much to be desired, but their cat collection and breeding record are unparalleled. The AZA Felid TAG has asked that accredited zoos maintain 8 species of small cats. Any that are not on the list (like jaguarundi) are being "phased out." Here are the 8 that made the cut: black-footed cat, serval, caracal, pallas cat, fishing cat, sand cat, canadian lynx and ocelot (brazilian supsecies only).

      Yeah, I had seen the RCP that's been posted online. Bobcats and pumas are listed as DERP, so they will continue to be exhibited as time goes on. Overall though, that doesn't leave many options for ASDM's Cat Canyon (which I suppose is why it's now being occupied by other small carnivores)

      How current is that information...I read that Jaguarundi's are considered for phase-in.

      Regardless, I doubt ASDM would have any trouble ever exhibiting Jaguarundi. Regional Collection Plans are only reccommendations, not requirements. And with the nature of ASDM's collection theme, i doubt it would even be frowned upon.

      The one I read is several years old. That's true, an RCP is only as important as a given institution thinks it is.

      i thought this was the 2nd greatest exhibit in the cat house. Serval being the first
