The presence of apex predators like the Mountain Lion and Jaguar are indicators of a healthy ecosystem. These large cats have large territories and require healthy prey populations. Bordering La Amistad National Park connects the 400 acres of Mount Totumas Cloud Forest with an immense wilderness. For this reason each of the three locations were we set up the game camera have yielded images of Mountain Lions. These most recent images were captured between Sept 1-14, 2014. We also captured images of their prey; Collared Peccary, Armadillo and Red Brocket Deer.

We are ever hopeful to one day get an image of a Jaguar.
