Hello May!
Ocelot Kittens

New Additions!

We're excited to introduce the newest additions to the Greenville Zoo family and even we can't get over how cute they are! Oz and Evita, the zoo's ocelot pair, welcomed their second litter in March. Once the kittens' gender is determined, we'll hold a naming contest for them, so stay tuned by watching our Facebook page!

More about the ocelot kittens.
