Ocelot cam-trapped in AZ

Some hunters were cam-trapping in Cochise County, Arizona and got a picture of an ocelot.

How cool is that! One of the stupidest things I have ever done involved a pet ocelot in Costa Rica- I scratched him behind the ears, and, noticing the serious muscles in his neck and regretting my impulsiveness, I started to remove my hand. The ocelot decided he liked having his ears scratched and faster than I could see, he snagged my fingertips with his claws and very gently (hardly drawing any blood) drew my hand back to his head. I very carefully disengaged and put that life lesson away for future reference- grin!
