Our friends at Caiman Ecological Refuge wanted to share with you some pictures they took of Jaguars over the last two weeks. The month of September was an excellent month for the Jaguar Habituation Project and the team there managed to spend a lot of hours with 4 different Jaguars both at night as well as during the daytime. The guests visiting Caiman seem to be very exited with what they are trying to achieve. We where lucky enough to find a nice female Jaguar for the first group we took out.
After Alex’s and Renias, from the Tracker Academy, visited in August, the team was advised to build some new roads which have now been completed and proved to be very productive in obtaining the kind of sightings seen in this post.
The Caiman staff even managed to find and spend over 10 hours with Fantasma (a huge male Jaguar) while he was feeding on a Tapir. Probably a world’s first!
Lets hope the last few months of 2012 prove to be as successful as the recent ones with the Jaguar sightings and the continued habituation of these beautiful creatures.
