The Ocelot lives in the Amazon rainforest under leafy canopies . Unlike other cats they do not avoid water and can swim well . Ocelots are usually dark yellow and reddish grey . Ocelots can adapt easily to its surroundings by having night vision , retractable claws , and can travel 38 miles per hour . An ocelot mainly feasts on small rodents but is also known to eat birds , snakes , and fish . In the future ocelots will have webbed feet for swimming in its new habitat, the swamp . I think the new habitat will be the swamp because of the lack of water and global warming . It will also be smaller and skinnier to be hard to spot . It will have thicker fur and darker fur . It will eat very small fish because its surroundings are mostly water and liquid .
