FELIS – Geoffroy’s Cats


Geoffroy’s Cats are probably the most common wild cat in South America. They are good swimmers and very agile climbers. Like Margay’s they have been seen to walk effortlessly upside-down along a branch. Whilst Geoffroy’s cats are considered to be Crepuscular animals (active during the day and at night) its thought they prefer to hunt at night. Geoffroy’s cats have been seen to stand on their back legs, using their tails as support (much like a meercats) to give themselves a better viewing position whilst checking for predators or hunting for prey.
