Corpus Christi, Texas — The Texas State Aquarium recently welcomed two Ocelot sisters, Mira and Leeloo, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Oceanot is a small wild cat about twice the size of a domestic cat and has been designated as an endangered species by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. According to authorities, Ocelot is also known as one of the most elusive and lonely animals in North America. This makes tracking and investigation difficult.

However, thanks to the species survival program in the aquarium, efforts are being made to increase that number.

“Therefore, Ocelot plays an important role in its ecosystem. It does not necessarily have to be aquatic, but Ocelot lives far below the upper boundary of Lake Laguna Madre and the Mexican region. Therefore, Ocelot has this. It’s at the heart of the key part, the ecosystem, “said Jesse Gilbert, Chief Executive Officer.

The aquarium states that it has worked with people on the Texas A & M University Kingsville range management team to design a new home for Ocelot.

When the Texas State Aquarium opens at 10am, you can see them every day.
