The Kodkod - Leopardus guigna -The smallest felid in the Americas
Commonly known as Kodkod, Guiña, Chilean Cat, Guigna and Guina, Leopardus guigna (Felidae) is reputed to be the smallest species of wild cat in the Western Hemisphere, averaging up to 52 cm in length, no larger than a typical house cat.
They are similar in appearance to Geoffroy’s cats (Leopardus geoffroyi) except kodkods have less distinct stripes on their head and shoulder regions and they have thicker tails.
Besides being the smallest felid in the Americas, kodkods also has the smallest distribution. This species is only found in central and southern Chile, Chiloé Island of Chile, Guaitecas Island of Chile, the Andes Mountains, and western Argentina. Having a patchy area of occupancy, currently Leopardus guigna is listed as Vulnerable species on the IUCN Red List.
