About 5 months ago I wrote about a male Puma that was spotted twice near the river cabin of Kabalebo. Here is a follow up:
Of course it was exciting news to learn that a Puma was 'caught' by the trophy cam. Many people talk about wanting to see a Jaguar, but seeing a Puma is also a rare chance in your lifetime. I haven't seen the Puma 'live' with my own eyes, but thanks to the trophy cams I have seen it many times passing by and I also have an idea about his behaviour.
These were the first pictures that were taken of the Puma. He still looks impressive. These were taken where I feed the Lowland tapir too. Luckily I still see the tapir wandering around the area.
Months later I installed another trophy cam, this time at the Beechcraft trail minutes away from the resort. It was immediately hitting the Jackpot: not only did the Puma showed up regularly, it was also marking his territory … right in front of the camera. Is this good news or bad news?
This was the last seen picture of the Puma walking the river cabin path.
I guess that the Puma has marked the area near the resort as his territory. I have posted many videos of this remarkable wild cat. The good news is that he also found a mate and it is possible that in the near future we can see, on the trophy cams, little Puma's passing by.
Wait and see ….
I'll keep you posted!
