I still prefer tigers.

About 15 years ago in a jungle camp near Manaus, Brazil, I got to play with a half wild ocelot.

It was an incredible animal. No larger than a house cat, but I am confident it could have bitten our my throat if it wanted to.

It was playing with me, climbing up my pants and shirt to grab treats I was holding at head height. I was wearing heavy trekking clothes because the thorns in the Amazon jungle have to be seen to be believed.

Another tourist, who was wearing light weight pants, tried to do the same thing. The ocelot's claws ripped through his pants and gouged his legs bloody before he had time to throw it the food and get away.
