    Has TP&W seen it ? There have been other reports in the area which were never confirmed. The area is also the last habitat in Texas for ocelot.

    Really cool.....

    Agree with @buck wild that it should be shared with TPW if it hasn't been. Having it truly confirmed would be awesome.

    Everyone should know that this one is a fake, there are no Jackalope's in Texas. They are native to Wyoming and can't stand the heat down in Texas.

    My old neighbor, now deceased, told a story of calling one up in the 70’s. Another friend a bit north of me saw one about 5 years ago. They are around especially south Texas but very elusive.

    We have a game camera out on the path so hopefully we will catch more pictures of it. Rest assured, if we do I will post them!

    I remember a book I had when I was a kid written by John Wooters about hunting in Texas and there was a picture of a Jaguarundi that had been called in and shot. Of course this was more than 40 years ago and prior to being listed.

    Hope you get more pictures and confirmation on yaguarundi. It will be great.
    (From the first telephone video, I think is not, I'm afraid)

    We’ve had a game camera on the trail for a week and no further photos. My son is studying in the School of Agriculture studying Range and Wildlife Management at Texas A & M Kingsville. He has sent the video to a Professor who is doing research on Ocelots in South Texas so we are awaitng his opinion of the video.

    Stay tuned!

    If you look closely right at the end when he turns away you can see the base of the tail. The cat is carrying his tail very low while walking.

    GREAT thread!

    As a side note, I wish that more was published about Jaguars in the USA.

    Very cool video. Looked like it was stalking something.
    I couldn't see the tail either. Is it long tailed or short tailed? With a short tail I would have assumed it was a bobcat but couldn't see it that well on my small screen.

    Charles Darwin, the English naturalist, best known for his contribution to the evolution science ("On the Origin of Species"),
    edited a book name "Zoology of the Voyage of the HMS Beagle under the command of Captain Fitz Roy R.N. during the years 1832 to 1836", where he describes the creatures he found in such trip.
    The book includes this picture of the Yaguarundi. yaguarundi Darwin.jpg
