You’ve probably seen a cat climb up a tree but have you ever seen a cat cross a tree branch upside down with its back to the ground? Margays can do this with ease. They can also rotate their ankles up to 180 degrees which allows them to climb down tree trunks head first and hang from tree branches with just one leg.
