Costa Rica – trail-cam update pt.3

It’s been 8 months since the camera was put in position. It’s starting to show signs of humidity damage now, but for the time being it’s still taking pictures. The latest batch show much more of the same selection of mammals, and pleasingly the Ocelots are still coming. I don’t know how many individual cats there are, but some captures are still showing two cats at a time. The big news is that another species of cat has been captured – a Puma. There are still 4 more species of cat in Costa Rica and I’d really like to capture at least one of those before the camera finally gives up to the heat and humidity of the Osa Peninsula.

The Puma has been added to the species list, bring the Costa Rica list to 243. There are still a good 40 or so species that I’ve yet to identify.
