There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Very rare find, male from the region of los Llanos de Moxos in Bolivia. This area is very understudied in terms of fauna, it has also been greatly altered by human agriculture and ranching.

In the U.S.A., roadkill rates of animals (including mountain lions, bears, dogs, sheep and deer) fall dramatically by as much as 58%, as the lockdown forced traffic to fall by as much as 73%, during peak times in March and April: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/anima...n-traffic/

"We found this old aoudad skull in the mountains and I put it into Chuck Norris’ path to see what his reaction would be, which I would describe as mildly curious but generally apathetic. But look close at that first video and notice the big scrape marks and gashes on his chest. I can’t imagine another cat challenging Chuck Norris for his territory but it’s possible that ‘ol Steven Seagal is his throwing his weight around again, peein on Chuck’s marking post, sniffin around his ladies, and provoked a duel, which Chuck Norris obviously would’ve won. Or it’s equally as possible Chuck just got scraped up killing an animal bigger than himself via the jump on the back and crush the windpipe with your teeth technique. Always risky. Also look close and you’ll see Chuck’s missin some toes, which he might’ve had to pull off escaping from a leg hold trap. Also interested in the aoudad skull are a bobcat, coyote, javelina, and a really beautiful dancing spotted skunk with a penchant for headstands. Videos graciously taken on @nature_tx as scouting vids for @deepintheheartfilm with the help of @austintorios @train.dreams @forktailed"

Mating pairs

In Torres del Paine, Chile

In Patagonia park, Argentina





Sexual dimorphism among Andean cougars can be seen with males not only having larger body proportions and significantly bigger heads, but more often than not will also have a darker coat coloration compared to females, who will usually be bay in hue.

My gut feeling is that the largest cougars are still in North America even though the Patagoinian cougars are obviously very large as well.

They both appear to be male, the first one is hefty looking.

Is that a North American cougar (Puma concolor couguar) or South American cougar (Puma concolor concolor)? I have 2 separate threads for those now.
