If you were referring to my image, it's actually an ocelot. The markings are very similar to a fishing cat, but they come from our Southern neighbors rather than Asia.

I was but you are wrong :-D. Your cat is a fishing cat definitely not an Ocelot. An Ocelot has bigger ears and paws.

This is an Ocelot

Perhaps they have added a new animal without updating their list. Thanks for the info.

"

Interesting that they have animals in there that are definitely NOT cats eg: Klipspringer, Capybara (The capybara is the largest rodent in the world. It is a member of the genus Hydrochoerus..)

I am sure they had some rationale for that - like maybe they live in Cat Country which must be a eco-system I have never heard of or maybe are food for the big cats? :)

"Cat Country" is an area of the zoo reserved mainly for different species of cats, but there are other animals also displayed in that area.
Here are a couple of other specimens from "Cat Country" that I took the same day that fit this thread.
