It was indeed an amazing experience. However, it was not the first time we were lucky ;-) In 2010, we were lucky to see two jaguar cubs in the jungle in Peru. these pictures will be added to projectnoah later... I'm working backwards through my pictures ;-)

What an amazing experience this must have been. I've seen many bi8g cats in the wild, but have never seen a cougar. Totally impressed! Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos of such beautiful animals.
