In July, Erik and Rhea gave us a wildlife camera to use on our property because Erik is trying to collect data about cats in this area, and the animals the cats eat. We've had the camera in a couple of different spots, and until the last two weeks we hadn't managed to shoot anything other than a couple of birds, a squirrel, and an agouti. Perhaps it's the cooler, wetter weather, but whatever the reason, we finally had some results in the past week and a half.
We think this is a ground mole, although it's difficult to see and if anybody has any better ideas, we're willing to listen. The animal is just outside the middle of the picture, towards 2:00.
This is a fox.
A chachalaca - sort of like a skinny wild chicken.
This is the hind end of some cat, either a jaguarundi, or possibly a black domestic cat we've seen around here.
We don't think this is big enough to be a jaguar, but we finally got a spotted cat!
