Barbie with her cub !


Today we got to see Barbie and her cub, called F, in full size. The little one is about the size of an ocelot (Leopardus pardalis, jaguatirica) but stockier and obviously heavier. He's about 80 days old, just the age when they start to feed on meat ...
We have been watching both for 25 minutes, during which F wouldn't stop. Many vultures were around and F would try to catch some unsuccessfully. Barbie looks gorgeous and about 80 Kg heavy, very well. They came out of the forest at about 18:00 hours, that's why the pictures are sop horrible, because I had to use a very high ISO setting on the camera.
