The jaguar and its grandchildren
A blog post on the Field Museum website about the museum's 30th rapid inventory in Caquetá, Colombia:
"Thursday, 24 January 1952
Hunting goes on. We have about as much work as we can handle. The Hermano is resigned, does his work but so slowly. He prefers to putter with the scullery duties. Guillermo works hard. He checks the traps at night and gets up about 5:00 A.M. to check the traps again before going off on morning hunt. It is too dark before 7:00 A.M. to skin mice so I hunt from about 5:45 to 7:30 A.M. Nothing organic can be left overtime. Everything spoils quickly. Weather has been good and the skins are drying quickly."
