Part of our treasure: an exotic
plant where small frogs live!
Scientific Name: Felis yagouaroundi
Home: Forests covering the Quepos Mountains in
Central Costa Rica.
Description: Coat of or gray fur, slender body
up to 26 inches long, with stocky cat legs. Status: These creatures
are so hard to find that we have no idea how many are left in the
Alto Quepos Real Estate .
At twilight, the jaguarundi sets out on her hunt. Birds, rodents,
rabbits, frogs and fish are all suitable prey for this small and
agile cat. Jaguarundis hunt like housecats -- first stalking their
prey quietly, then pouncing suddenly. Compared to other small cats
like the ocelot and margay, however, the jaguarundi has a compact,
more powerful build. These creatures may be little, but they're
some of the toughest predators in the rain forest!
The Black-faced Solitaire(Myadestes melanops)
