And just another new sighting !

The pantanal cat (Leopardus braccatus, gato-palheiro) is probably by far the most elusive cat that inhabits this region. Nobody has ever seen it around here and now Lydia`s (the german giant anteater researcher that works here) camera traps finally got the most sought-after picture: the misterious Pantanal cat !
Here are two pictures pasted together, the left leaves no doubt about the ID and the right one shows you the size of it. It´s been caught 5 times by a camera-trap on this location: http://goo.gl/maps/uatF
