Jaguarundi by Truus & Zoo - In appearance the jaguarundi is unlike any other cat and has been likened to a large weasel or otter, hence its English common name of ‘Otter Cat’. It is uniform in colour, ranging from dark grey/brown to an almost chestnut brown. In common with other species of wild cat, the darker forms are usually associated with dense forest cover and the paler forms with more arid habitats.
