As the tree-climbing champ of the cat world, the margay has the ability to walk vertically down trees.
The jungle canopy of South and Central America is the realm of the tree-climbing margay.
They can judge distances perfectly.
A critical skill if you were to clear a gap of twelve feet with a single leap high above the forest floor.
And when it's time to descend, their ankles rotate 180 degrees so they can walk vertically down.
