Arieta, an ocelot kitten born in December at the Buffalo Zoo, is now on exhibit in the M&T Bank Rainforest Falls exhibit.

The Buffalo Zoo officials said the kitten was born Dec. 10 to first time parents Pedro and Ayla.

A zoo press release noted that the International Union for Conservation of Nature estimates that there are one million ocelots living in the wild, but births in captivity are rare.

Arieta and her mother will be on exhibit daily from 10 a.m. until noon.
