Encore Post: Camera trap catches video of mountain lions in Taos, New Mexico
This is a #repost from @donaldgrahamphotography via @PhotoAroundApp
This is shot on a trail 100ft from my house in Taos, NM. It’s extremely rare to see multiple mature mountain lions together like this. I was stunned to see this!#mountainlions #newmexicowildlife #wildernessculture #mountainlion #mountainlionsociety #taos #danieleforsythephoto #donaldgrahamphotography #donaldgraham @danieleforsythephoto #wildanimals #wilderness #wilderness_culture #wildanimal #cougar #cougars #panther #panthers #newmexico #wildlifelovers #wildlifephotography #wildlife_perfection

“Photo by @stevewinterphoto | It took 15 months to capture this camera trap image of a cougar named P-22, in front of the Hollywood sign in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. The photo sparked a movement to protect southern California’s last cougars and other wildlife in two large protected areas bisected by the 101 freeway north of L.A. It will be the world’s largest wildlife overpass—California’s first—and will be completed by 2022. Meanwhile, this cougar cat has become a celebrity: October 22 has been declared P-22 Day in L.A.; he’s featured in school curricula focusing on urban wildlife and ecosystems; and he’s part of a permanent exhibit at the LA County Natural History Museum.”

A subadult cougar has spotted something and is standing totally still, the flick of its tail and the wind rustling the foliage are the only giveaways this is a movie. I even added a half speed slow motion clip so you can get a good look at this cougar caught in a camera trap aka trail cam in New Mexico. This is a repost from Furman Cougar Project.•

Cougar Puma concolor at the Yanacocha Reserve in ECUADOR. Photo by Peter Wendelken. by Neotropical Pete COUGAR Puma concolor. Two Cougars were observed together on the main trail (the Inca Ditch) at the Yanacocha Reserve on the northwestern slopes of Volcán Pichincha to the west of Quito in northwestern Ecuador on January 9, 2020. This photo of a fleeing Puma was taken at 10:35 AM in full sunlight.
Shortly after 10:30 AM we were walking east along the Inca Ditch about halfway between the first and second tunnels. I was looking east along the sunny trail when I saw the first cougar walking in my direction along the trail.
I brought my camera up to my eye to snap a photo but it didn’t auto focus and the shutter release would not do anything. The cougar went upslope to the left of the trail not to be seen again. Almost immediately I saw a second cougar, somewhat smaller than the first, also completely in the open and headed along the trail in the same direction as the first.
Realizing that the Nikon bayonet mount connecting the lens and camera was not allowing electronic communication between the lens and camera, I turned the camera off and back on and twisted the lens counterclockwise. But by the time the camera would take photos, the second cougar was retreating back down the trail, disappearing behind some tallish grass atop a small earthen prominence. I quickly fired off a series of images aiming at the grass. I thought I had nothing but when I enlarged the photos, the first four photos had partial images of the dorsal surface of the cougar seen though the grass. The most detailed of these photos is above. It shows the ears (from behind), the crown of the head, the nape and upper back and the front portion of the tail.
I have not had frequent problems with the lens rotating clockwise slightly on its bayonet mount to lose electronic contact with the camera. And this happened at the most inopportune moment conceivable. If I had been able to shoot from the beginning I would have been able to get good to excellent frontal (face) and semiprofile (body) photos of both of the pumas in full sunlight in the open at a pretty reasonable distance.
Cougars are shy and retiring and seldom seen. There are very few photographs of wild cougars in Ecuador online and almost all of those have been made in the twilight hours or at night using “camera traps.” So it is very rare to see one and even rarer to see one in full sunlight at midmorning. Rarer still to see two together. Possibly this was a mother and a very large offspring.
In the United States Puma concolor is known by the names Mountain Lion, Cougar, and Puma. In Latin America, it is known by the name Puma.
The Cougar belongs to the family Felidae. It is found from southern Canada through the United States, Mexico and Central America to southern Argentina and Southern Chile in South America.
Dos Pumas Puma concolor se vieron juntos en el sendero llamado “la Trocha Inca” en la Reserva Yanacocha en las faldas noroccidentales del Volcán Pichincha al oeste de Quito en el nordoeste de Ecuador el 9 de enero de 2020. La foto de uno de los pumas que está huyendose se sacó a las 10 y 35 de la mañana.

Puma - Is one of the most adaptable carnivores on our planet they occupy many different habitat types from desert, to boreal forest, tropical rainforest, montane habitats, and even the southern wetlands of Florida. Puma are consider an “umbrella species” due to their large home range requirements, this felid’s presence is indicative of an ecosystem’s overall health and connectivity.
The species has a myriad of different common names based on their massive geographic range, some of these names include mountain lion, puma, panther, cougar, or even sometimes catamount (although I’ve never actually heard someone use it casually). However they all fall under the same species which is “Puma concolor”. There are a few recognized subspecies based on genetic differentiation and geographic isolation. The size, fur thickness, and coloration can vary quite a bit based on the phylogeography and habitat types of the different populations. The Puma seen here is thriving in the tropical rainforests of Guyana, it is a female and she has a light reddish coat like most of them do in the neotropics. Lastly - I did not insert an Amazon screaming Piha call into the video, but thanks to the bird for making it all the more exotic.

Ok, this is for all my American friends who say they won’t come to Australia because of our spiders and snakes. Well the US has coyotes, bears, wolves and these mountains lions… I would rather fight off a snake of a spider any day, thank you very much! #australiavusa #mountainlion #danger
“This is Walter, a six-year-old Florida panther living at ZooTampa. He was rescued in 2017 by @MyFWC biologists and veterinarians from Highlands County, where his front left foot had been caught in a snare that cut into his bones and nearly killed him. At @zootampa he underwent a series of surgeries and a partial amputation that saved his life. Unable to be returned to the wild, Walter was given a permanent home at ZooTampa, and he was named after a donor who was inspired to invest in the veterinary facilities to help Walter and other Florida panthers. Walter is now an ambassador at ZooTampa, where his story can inspire nearly one million annual visitors and where 13 Florida panthers have been rescued and rehabilitated since 1988.”

“A large male panther emerges from a wildlife underpass that allows safe passage beneath State Road 80 near Labelle, Florida. The properties on either side of the road are private ranches that have been protected by perpetual conservation easements, funded by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and other partners. There was already a bridge at this site for cars and trucks to cross over a canal. By adding ledges to the sides of the canal and high fencing on either side of the bridge, conservationists were able to encourage panthers to cross beneath the road rather than through traffic above. With the pictured segment of the statewide Florida Wildlife Corridor secure, panthers and other wildlife can now move safely from large public lands up to the southern banks of the Caloosahatchee River and the northern Everglades beyond. The Caloosahatchee had been a long-standing barrier to the northward movement of female panthers until late 2016, when the first female panthers were detected on the north side of the river in nearly 50 years. For Florida panthers to reach sustainable numbers, they need access to their historic territory in central and north Florida.”

“NEW HOPE FOR THE FLORIDA PANTHER | The Florida panther – a subspecies of puma – once roamed throughout the southeastern United States, but hunting and habitat loss reduced it to a single breeding population isolated in southern Florida. Carlton Ward, founder of the FL Wildlife Corridor campaign, has spent years documenting the recovery of this endangered big cat, now threatened by suburban development and vehicle collisions. Though the population has increased over the past few decades to about 230 adults, there needs to be more than 600 distributed throughout Florida to give the subspecies a chance of recovery. And that means a new breeding population north of the Caloosahatchee River. | A male Florida panther leaps over a creek in the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge on the northwestern edge of the Everglades – the subspecies’ last refuge. With the help of scientists, Carlton identified panther trails in the swamp forest and then built sophisticated camera traps that could withstand the subtropical wet environment and react to a fast-moving subject. But with males patrolling a range of up to 518 square kilometres (200 square miles), he was lucky if a panther passed by a camera once a month. And even then, they usually did so at night. There were also the problems of malfunctioning equipment and cameras lost to wildfires and then to Hurricane Irma. So to capture this one and only daylight image took Carlton nearly two years.”

An Individual in Colorado got the surprise of his life when he discovers 4 cougars, a mom and her older cubs, on his porch drinking from his fountain. The original video goes on for sometime but I edited it so it would fit here.
The post I edited was from Fox 31 KDVR.
