THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE THE BABY OCELOT SPEAKS MUCH THE SAME LANGUAGE AS ANY OTHER KITTEN A New World member of the cat family enjoys distinction both for its beauty and its amiability. This youngster, caught in the jungle near Sumacu, was taken to the London Zoo. HE HAS TO BE EVER ON GUARD AGAINST THE TERRIBLE JAGUAR Although no match for the jaguar as a fighter, the tapir sometimes escapes that animal's attacks by tearing madly into the dense jungle and sweeping his assailant from his back. The baby tapir will lose nearly all his white markings as he grows older.
