Prowling Puma

Here's a nice sequence of the same puma (Puma concolor) along Gallon Jug Estate's Punta de Cacao road a few weeks ago. While some animals show awareness of the remote camera, this animals doesn't even give it a passing glance. This is a nice healthy puma, appears to be a male and likely one that has been photographed before. But it is just impossible to say for sure since it has no visible distinguishing characteristics to match against previous photos.


  1. Very nice.

    We had no cats on our recent Chan Chich trip except for a brief look at the outline of an ocelot during a night drive. We did see fresh jaguar tracks at the entrance to the Bajo Trail right off Sylvestor rd (right near the camera trap). Maybe some good photos are waiting on that camera when Ben comes back.

    In any case, we had a good trip. It was a little buggy but the snakes and amphibians were outstanding.

  2. Thanks for the update, Alan. I'll be posting some of Ben's photos shortly!
