Puma, cougar, or mountain lion, call them whatever you’d like. These beautiful majestic cats were caught on video in the National Park of Tingo Maria in Huanuco.
With the placement of video cameras in the protected area, the National Service of Natural Areas Protected by the State (Sernanp) is able to monitor the flora and fauna and share these kinds of wonderful moments from Tingo Maria with everyone.
Sernanp posted the video of the pumas on their official Facebook account where you can see one of the pumas hiding in the back and seems to be looking at the camera, while you see another puma creep up and walk past the camera. See it for yourself below!
¡Nos pareció ver un lindo pumita, o dos! disfruten de la vida silvestre en el Parque Nacional Tingo María =)
