The Buffalo Zoo has named a baby Ocelot who was born in November.

With the help of the community on the Buffalo Zoo's social media sites, the winning name of the baby kitten is Nico.

Western New Yorkers had a chance to see baby Nico at the Zoo on Sunday.

Zookeepers say this animal is rare to the states. There are currently only about 100 Ocelot's in America. They say it's a special opportunity to have the animals here in Western New York.

Welcome, Nico!
