The ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) has a wide geographic distribution. However, in Brazil, there is still a lack of information on their population status and, in the Caatinga, little is known about its occurrence. This paper aims to register the new occurrence of Leopardus pardalis in the State of Pernambuco, Northeast Brazil.
