Of the eight species of Neotropical cats found in Brazil, the oncilla, also called the little spotted cat or gato-do-mato ( Leopardus tigrinus ) by its Portuguese name, is the smallest and one of the least known species (Nowell & Jackson 1996, Oliveira in press A). Most aspects of this felid’s natural history remain unknown. As a consequence, it has been the subject of a series of preconceptions regarding its biology, such as its occurrence in the Amazon basin and at lower altitudes (see Cat News 41).
