Stealth Cat
Photograph by Christian Ziegler

Despite a thick carpet of dry leaves on the forest floor, a young female ocelot is able to move silently along a jungle trail on Panama's Barro Colorado Island (BCI), where researchers are delving into the hidden life of the species. By combining an innovative, high-tech monitoring system with old-fashioned fieldwork, scientists are trying to understand the role of ocelots in the jungle ecosystem.
