Since 2010, three Brazilian Ocelot kittens (females “Milagre,” “Ayla,” and “Revy”) have been produced using artificial insemination (AI) techniques developed and performed by scientists from the Cincinnati Zoo’s Center for Conservation & Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW).

I’ll never forget the day I first met Sana. She found me the day I was separated from my family. I had hid under a bush in the Brahmaputra flood plains hoping my family would find me soon. I heard rustling through the forest and was sure it was mother. Instead, a giant Bengal tiger appeared. I was terrified but she just watched me until it grew dark. At some point I fell asleep and when I woke up she had wrapped herself around me, to keep me warm. From that day forth we were inseparable.
