If I Had The Energy

I would get up early and walk with Claudia every morning on her wildlife and birding walks. If I did that, these are examples of the shots I could get. All are reproduced with permission of Claudia and PJ, Dutch Duo Wildlife Photography. Thanks Claudia and PJ!

  1. This is what I found on the Internet about the jaguarundi:

    The jaguarundi (Puma yagouaroundi) is a medium-sized wild cat that ranges from southern Texas in the United States south to South America. It has a total length of 88–128 cm (35–50 inches) and a weight of up to 9.1 kg (20 lbs).[3] It has short legs and an appearance somewhat like an otter; the ears are short and rounded. For this reason, these animals are sometimes referred to as "otter cats." This cat is closely related to the much larger and heavier cougar as evident by its similar genetic structure and chromosome count; both species are in the genus Puma
