Babou and Dali

For a time, Babou, the ocelot, wore a stone studded collar and accompanied the flamboyant Dali almost everywhere he went. Dali once said that she was “nothing more than a normal cat which he had “painted over in an op art design.”

I do not know its gender.

OCELOTS (Leopardus pardalis) are native to South and Central America.

  • Ocelots are aka the dwarf leopards, painted leopards, and McKenney’s Wildcat.
  • They are good swimmers and enjoy an occasional dip in the water.
  • From 1972 to 1997, this sleek, smooth coating led to the ocelot’s status as an endangered species after thousands were killed and their fur sold at great expense.

Exotic pets belong in their natural habitat.

This one looks much happier.

    Nice post and I agree. BBC makes the best documentaries so no need for me to visit a zoo 😉
