Nice Jaguar Sequence

A very nice jaguar sequence from Ben at Chan Chich Lodge just came in. I've cropped the images to enlarge the jaguar for your viewing pleasure. That removed the data which some of you enjoy, so just to let you know, it was taken on 28 May at 06:47 AM on the Bajo Trail intersection.

Beyond that ... what can I tell you? It appears to be a male but not Curious Jorge or Prowler although admittedly it is a bit difficult to make strong comparisons when the animal is in this position. It's also somewhat dimly lit due to the early hour and infra-red use. So for the time being, we'll have to wait for more images to confirm its identity.


  1. Excellent! I am excited to see another jaguar out in daylight. Maybe we should just hike the bajo trail dawn to dusk since it seems to be a great place to see this elusive cat.

  2. The Bajo Trail is a really great trail with a nice transitional zone as well ... good luck!
