  • The kodkod, or guiņa, is the smallest South American cat, growing to be about half the size of a large domestic cat.
  • The Kodkod is grey/brown in colour, marked with round black spots and some streaking on the head and shoulders. The underparts are white.
  • It is native only to Argentina and Chile and is found in moist temperate mixed forests.
  • The Kodkod is an nocturnal animal. It is also an excellent climber and probably forages in trees as well as on the ground.
  • It has been speculated that they exhibit a high degree of social behaviour, and may even live communally, however there is no evidence for this.
