The jaguarundi is a small wild cat found in Southern Texas and down into South America in lowland brush areas near running water. The jaguarundi is known for its small round ears, sleek body, and long tail, with the tallest breed only growing to be one foot in height and 4 feet in length (including the tail). The jaguarundi is a smaller relative of the cougar and ranges in color from reddish-brown to black.
