Puma encounter at the Embiara Lodge

A few weeks ago our friend and colleague, Stefan Grol of the Embiara Lodge was very fortunate, when during a stroll in the lodge's surroundings, he witnessed the elusive puma. The area around Embiara Lodge is bursting with wildlife, such as giant anteaters, giant otters, tapirs, macaws and even jaguars. While there are pumas, they are difficult to see as they are very shy of humans. They are more active at night, so Stefan could not believe his eyes and ears whenhe witnessed this adult female puma chase down and kill an adult male capybara in the lake beside the lodge.
