Pumas at Barranco Alto in Pantanal

12 posts in this topic

Had to post from the Barranco Alto guest computer! Such a thrill!

1 on night drive, too quick for a photo

mother and 2 cubs on a walk, couple photos taken

 

 

Great place. Rains started a little early this year--today. I was told it was a privilege to be here for first of the rains. It lasted about 4 hours.

 

Full report with photos in Oct.

Nice! Is that north or south Pantanal? We had a bit of rain in August when we were there!

South. @@kittykat23uk you are everywhere!

 

One more puma seen yesterday for a total of 5. That many puma sightings is not typical. Lots of other good stuff around too.

Can't wait to see the report...

 

I came back yesterday from Madidi in the Bolivian Amazonas. I missed the jaguar for few minutes, but I've been lucky enough to see a puma in the jungle by night, while we were trekking in the early morning to a lick at Berraco. Amazonian pumas seem to be much smaller than Patagonian ones, the face is quite different, much "thinner" than the ones from Northern America and Patagonia.

 

I'll write a report soon with nice pics of macaws, dolfins, caimans, anteater, southern tamandua and much more !

We are in a very lucky club, Jeremie! Like you, just missed the jaguar. We could tell by the very fresh tracks.

 

I am very interested in Madidi. Have heard good things about it.

 

My excuse for taking my time with a report will be that I have to read all the other ones first. Lots of them from South America.

Atravelynn, congrats on such a fantastic experience! If you don't rememer, we have traded communication in the past about the Pantanal via Fodors. I am glad to hear that you have gone back again.

 

I just saw your review on tripadvisor and those great teaser pics. Can't wait to read the full report.
