Asiatic Golden Cat Description
  An arboreal acrobat, the Margay is the only felid whose hindfeet can rotate through 180 degrees, allowing it to hang upside down while descending head-first like a squirrel. Its coat is yellowish brown above and white below,
with longitudinal rows of dark spots that are lighter in the middle. Resembling thr Ocelot it is , however, more slender, with a longer tail. Its tree dwelling prey include rats, squirrels, young sloths, birds, grubs,and spiders.
With the declining of availability of Ocelot pelts, the Margay has become a highly sought-after small cat in the fur trade.
