This study demonstrates that ocelots (Leopardus pardalis) extensively use primates as a food resource at the Caratinga Biological Station (CBS) in Southeast Brazil. Analysis of 60 fecal samples collected over 4 years revealed predation upon the brown howler monkey (Alouatta guariba), the muriqui (Brachyteles hypoxanthus), and the brown capuchin monkey (Cebus apella). The most frequent items found in the fecal samples analyzed were Calomys (n=16) and non‐identified Aves (n=15), followed by A… 
Food habits of the ocelot, Leopardus pardalis, in two areas in southeast Brazil
TLDR
The occurrence of ocelots in CBS indicates the adaptive flexibility of this felid to forests fragments, probably facilitated by the high biomass of potential prey – in this case, the primate Alouatta guariba.
High consumption of primates by pumas and ocelots in a remnant of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest.
TLDR
The results indicate a relatively high consumption of primates by felines in the ocelot and puma at the Feliciano Miguel Abdala Reserve, in Minas Gerais, south-eastern Brazil, which may be the result of the high local density of primates as well as the greater exposure to the risks of predation in fragmented landscapes.
Registro de murciélagos depredados por Leopardus pardalis (Carnivora: Felidae) en el oriente ecuatoriano
TLDR
The stomach contents of an adult male ocelot that was hunted by members of a Huaorani community in Pastaza Province, Ecuador demonstrate that bats are items in the diet of this predator.
Food Habits of Ocelots and Potential for Competition With Bobcats In Southern Texas
TLDR
The data suggest that bobcats also preyed more heavily on the largest rodents and less on the medium-sized rodents than ocelots did, and studies of the dietary differences when both or only one of the felid species is present in an area would allow the likelihood of negative impacts of competition to be fully evaluated.

The ocelot faces conservation problems throughout its distribution, mainly due to illegal hunting and habitat transformation. It has been documented that the ocelot diet consists mainly of small
Terrestrial Activity in Pitheciins (Cacajao, Chiropotes, and Pithecia)
TLDR
The results of this review emphasize that terrestrial use is rare among the pitheciins in general and is usually associated with the exploitation of specific resources or habitat types.
PREDATION OF BIRDS BY AN ENDANGERED PRIMATE SPECIES, CALLICEBUS COIMBRAI, IN THE BRAZILIAN ATLANTIC FOREST
TLDR
Two decades of research on Cebus capucinus: male-male social relationships in wild whitefaced capuchins and how the computer program CERVUS accommodates genotyping error increases success in paternity assignment are reviewed.
Predation and Predation Attempts on Red Titi Monkeys (Callicebus discolor) and Equatorial Sakis (Pithecia aequatorialis) in Amazonian Ecuador
TLDR
The data indicate that pitheciid primates may face a wider array of possible predators than previously recognized, and that titi monkeys and sakis are susceptible to different major classes of predators.
Terrestriality of Wild Sapajus cay (Illiger, 1815) as Revealed by Camera Traps
TLDR
A seasonal effect on the frequency of terrestrial behaviours of capuchin monkeys, who used the ground more during the dry season, was observed, mainly linked to ecological needs during periods of scarce food and water.

COMPETITIVE RELEASE IN DIETS OF OCELOT (LEOPARDUS PARDALIS) AND PUMA (PUMA CONCOLOR) AFTER JAGUAR (PANTHERA ONCA) DECLINE
TLDR
Both populations of ocelots in the study ate larger prey than elsewhere in their range, suggesting that their fundamental niche includes more medium-sized prey than their realized niche in other sites.
Predation on Alouatta guariba clamitans Cabrera (Primates, Atelidae) by Leopardus pardalis (Linnaeus) (Carnivora, Felidae)
TLDR
With the documentation large howler monkey remains in faeces, the possibility of ocelot being a potential predator of all Neotropical primates should be taken into consideration.

TLDR
Analysis of scats showed terrestrial mammals to be the chief prey of all three felids, but reptiles and birds were also numerically important in the diets of ocelot and jaguar.
Terrestrial Behavior of Ateles spp
Spider monkeys (Ateles spp.) are well known for their highly arboreal lifestyle, spending much of their time in the highest levels of the canopy and rarely venturing to the ground. To investigate
Reactions of wild tamarins,Saguinus mystax andSaguinus fuscicollis to avian predators

TLDR
The modification of the tamarin' behavior by the potential presence of aerial predators indicates that raptors represent an important predatory threat to tamarins.
Timing of births in sympatric brown howler monkeys (Alouatta fusca clamitans) and northern muriquis (Brachyteles arachnoides hypoxanthus)
TLDR
Comparative knowledge of birth patterns in Alouatta to a poorly known species is extended, and insights into the different ways in which diet and life history may affect the timing of births in large‐bodied platyrrhines under the same seasonal ecological conditions are provided.
Leopard predation and primate evolution.
TLDR
It is suggested that the principal effect of leopard predation has been on primates' cognitive evolution and that predation by leopards did not drive the evolution of these traits in the predicted way.

TLDR
Calculations indicate that raptor predation is a significant cause of mortality for lemur populations relative to other causes, and Nocturnal lemurs may best avoid predation by diurnal raptors by exhibiting a solitary lifestyle and cryptic antipredator tactics, whereas, diurnal le murs benefit less by increasing group size than by using specific antipredators.

TLDR
The taphonomy of primate remains collected under 16 nests of African crowned eagles (Stephanoaetus coronatus) in the Tai Forest, Ivory Coast is discussed and a large raptor could have been responsible for the death of the Taung child, Australopithecus africanus.
