Ghost of the Andes

Ghost of the Andes
by Thomas Rajan

Pumas from the South America also known as the Ghost of the Andes. They thrive in the Patagonia area as there is easy access to food with guiacomonas. During the early summer months as the subadult pumas are looking to satisfy their appetites lot of chulangas baby guiacanomas are born. The mothers go and kill these chulangos and leave it on the field for the cubs to feed. I set up my remote trap camera set up near a chulango who was killed by the mother puma. I was fortunate to get an image of this subadult puma eating the chulango hunted by mother in the beautiful mountain range of Patagonia.
