A margay (Leopardus wiedii) in Central America. Margay are the tree climbing experts of the cat world. They will never get stuck in a tree; their ankles can rotate 180° allowing them to walk vertically down.

This young female leopard has strikingly green eyes. Interestingly, there can be marked differences in eye colour between individuals. Some green, others a near-golden.
Today’s comes to us from 28-year-old graphic designer Clàudia Periera. This piece was created using both a digital illustrator and coloured markers, and was done as a both a work assignment, and as a gift for her boyfriend who just loves hyenas! These couples, from Almada, Portugal, have a big love for wildlife but especially hyenas. We don’t get many hyena pictures sent in, and we love how this one shows off the magnificent jaw of these misunderstood animals. Thank you for sharing your work with us Clàudia! If you’d like to see your work featured on our pages, just send it in a private message to our facebook page. Have a great weekend everyone!
