The Buffalo Zoo released photos of Arieta, an ocelot Wednesday.  Their  newest addition is a dwarf leopard kitten from from Central America.   READ MORE ABOUT THE KITTEN BELOW

Here's the announcement from the Zoo
The Buffalo Zoo’s latest addition, an ocelot kitten, is now on exhibit in M&T Bank Rainforest Falls.

The kitten was born to first time parents Pedro and Ayla on December 10, 2013. Keepers in
the exhibit named the spunky little girl “Arieta.” They report that she is a fast learner and
very active in the exhibit.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) estimates that there are a total
of one million ocelots living in the wild, but births in captivity are very rare. Zoo officials are
happy about the successful birth and the opportunity to share the kitten with the

Arieta and her mother Ayla are on exhibit daily from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. in M&T Bank
Rainforest Falls.
