Lakeside Encounter with Petaca
Our tracker Junior located her chilling out on a hill overlooking Lago Sarmiento. The brilliant deep blue of the lake provided the perfect compliment to her light tawny color. Petaca, a wild female Puma (Puma concolor), made her way through deep, thick brush along the shore of the lake for which her mother Sarmiento was named. A brief moment of eye contact with this beautiful cat took our breath away.
