No I didn't type that wrong. The jaguarundi (Puma yagouaroundi) is not the same thing as a jaguar. They are both cats, however, despite the jaguarundi looking more like a weasel. They have long, slender bodies, short legs, flattened heads, rounded ears, and a long tail.
The jaguarundi can be found in a wide range, from southern Texas all the way down to Argentina. They inhabit rainforests and dry climates. There are two main color morphs present in the jaguarundi: a dark morph (black, brown, or gray) and a red morph (tawny yellow to chestnut red). Unlike many other cat species, they do not possess spots.
These cats are very vocal, having 13 call recorded including a purr, whistle, scream, chatter, yap, and a bird-like “chirp.” Jaguarundi likely live alone or in pairs. The female will give birth to 1-4 kittens after approximately 70-74 days. She will keep her kittens in a den until they're about 28 days old. Jaguarundi reach sexual maturity in 2-3 years and live around 15 years.
Jaguarundi are of Least Concern on the IUCN Red List. However, the species is undergoing a decline right now due to habitat loss and fragmentation. Further study of this unique cat is needed for their future conservation.
