Jaguarundi Description
  More mustelid than felid in appearance, with its pointed snout, long body, and short legs, the Jaguarundi varies from black in forested areas to pale gray-brown or red in dry shrubland.
Much less nocturnal than most cats, it hunts in the morning and evening and forages mainly on the ground.
It is hunted and subject to habitat destruction
