Fun facts about the Margay:

  • Their ankles can rotate 180 degrees which allow them to both leap from tree to tree and climb down trees head first
  • They have large eyes that are adapted to night vision because they are nocturnal
  • Margays survive about 10 years longer in captivity than on their own
