Nothing is perfect and one of the cameras has malfunctioned, despite being programmed to work only at night, discharged the entire film roll in one afternoon taking amazing photos of… nothing!

Maybe some remember when I spoke on fixing cameras in the fence trying to get the animals that use the paths on the pasture. So, I could not resist and did try my luck again and fixed one. There is! Some cats and lots of cows!

A beautiful Nelore at the edge of Ponte Branca… Ok, no more cameras in the fence…

There are much more news and some new species. Keep it coming folks!

We have set the date for the next jaguar expedition at Ivinhema to August 4th until August 15th!!!

Nameless jaguars?

Dear friends,

Our jaguars still without proper names and there are three ocelots to be named!

For the female jaguar Mr. Pechir suggests Diane, Paula suggests Shakira and Elizabeth suggests Quilla.

More suggestions? Votes? And how about the ocelots?

A great hug from Brazil.
