Margays in the Caatinga

We published the first confirmed records of margays (Leopardus wiedii) using the proper semiarid vegetation of the Caatinga (See Paper here).

Towards the end of October, 2018, project members Lyse and Alex found this beautiful young margay on a camera at broad daylight in the proper Caatinga woodland forest! In fact at the Caetité site several of our margay pictures are at daylight. Why this activity pattern? We are currently working on solving this question.
