The ocelot is a small, spotted cat with a long tail. Visitors often confuse this wild cat with another commonly seen on the refuge -- the bobcat. The ocelot's range in the United States used to extend from South Texas up into Arkansas and Louisiana. Today, it is only found in the most southern tip of Texas where it is highly endangered due to loss of habitat.
