Abstract

Prevalence of anti-Toxoplasma antibody in free-ranging ocelots (Leopardus pardalis) in northeastern Mexico was 69% (n=26). Grouping by age and sex, there were significant differences between sexes in subadults (P=0.03) and between age classes in males (P=0.01). Antibody titer increased in two recaptured ocelots and decreased in two others.
