Jaguarundi (Puma yagouaroundi) at Hamerton Zoo Park - March 27 2012

This unusual looking small cat is quite rare in UK collections, and in many ways looks more like an atypical mustelid than the close cousin to the puma that it truly is! The zoo keeps three individuals of the species, and this individual in particular seemed highly territorial and wary of humans - hissing and growling at me every time I passed the enclosure!

      One of mine, too - they need more love, I reckon!
