Yesterday morning, when Tony and Jenny from the UK went down for an early walk down to the beach in front of the El Remanso Lodge, they could not have imagined what they were about to see!
A female puma, that we have caught several times on camera traps and that was also previously spotted 2 weeks ago by the beach, was lying next to the trail, around 20 meters in front of them! They took out their camera video and were able to take this incredible footage!
Pumas (puma concolor) are one of the 5 species of wildcats found on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. Because they are partly diaurnal mammals they are spotted more frecuently spotted than other wildcats. Despite this, it is still a rare encounter!
