(Felis yaguarundí), a predatory mammal of the family Felidae. The body measures as much as 80 cm in length, and the tail as much as 60 cm; the height at the shoulder is about 35 cm. Jaguarundis have a short-haired coat that may be grayish brown or smoky gray in color and in some individuals is bright red. There are light spots at the sides of the nose and on the chest. The jaguarundi inhabits South and Central America, Mexico, and the extreme south of the USA. It keeps to forest margins and shrub thickets. It feeds mainly on fish, lizards, birds, and rodents. It bears two to three young. The animals sometimes harm poultry.
