Not really, Dan, it was just one of those things (the interview) I kinda stumbled over! Well, good luck with the jaguar. I hope you manage to snap a shot of him in the future.

Adorable spotting, each cub is showing their personality in each shot. :)

Thanks Dangermouse. You found my newspaper interview, eh? You must have been doing some searching. That was from last sept. I don't go on mytropicalvisions FB page too much. I started it and then kind of didn't do much else with it. I just checked it again, thanks for the post there too. Unfortunately the jaguar eluded me on my recent trip to S. America. I had some high hopes and did 2 trips into the Pantanal and a long Amazon trip but it wasn't the best season for spotting them. I saw very fresh tracks, less than 12 hours old but that was it. Another park I had really high hopes for was closed to vehicular traffic, so I couldn't really explore the park properly. It's still a dream of mine to see a jaguar and giant anteater and I will be going back to S. America to try again sometime in the future.

I love all the photos, a great series of shots, but that first one, with one yawning, is just priceless!
Btw, Dan, I was looking on your website and FB page and found an article from a newspaper with an interview with you. It was interesting, and it mentioned a jaguar. You said you'd seen prints, did you ever manage to get a photo of one?

Thanks everyone. I think you're right Emma, the one yawing looks like a male.

looks like two females and a male. Golden maned male. Though Dark maned males have it a little easier in the wild...
