Big Cat Updates
Mary Ann Bobcat was found by feeders this AM with a large wound on her side. She was rushed to the Humane Society where Dr. Justin Boorstein and his team cleaned up the wound and sutured it closed. She woke up from surgery well and will recover in the hospital for 2 weeks. It appears as though she may have been snagged on a tree branch.
Max and MaryAnn over very active and always looking for mischief to get into. Keepers are watching MaryAnn closely and monitoring her recovery. They also went over their suite of cages in great detail looking for anything she may have hurt herself on.

Big Cat Fact - Ocelot
HABITAT: The ocelot occupies a wide spectrum of habitats types, ranging from scrublands to tropical rain forests. What all these habitats have in common is a well-structured vegetative cover. Ocelots have been recorded in mangrove forests, coastal marshes, savanna grasslands, thorn scrubs, and tropical and subtropical forest.
