Ambushed on the Jaguar Trail by Jack L Childs

Book Description

Caught in the act: Southwestern wildlife in their natural habitat. Jack and Anna Childs went hunting for the elusive Southwestern jaguar, but what they found was bigger than the rare spotted cat, and even more surprising. Founders of the Borderlands Jaguar Detection Project, the Childs set up "camera traps," or remote-sensor cameras activated by motion and body heat, along the U.S.-Mexico border. They did "catch" the first live, wild jaguar ever photographed this way in the U.S. But their non-invasive, candid cameras also captured fascinating animal behavior across the entire ecosystem. The jaguar, it seems, it a minor figure in a habitat that supports over 20 other large mammals. Black bears, mountain lions, bobcats, javelinas, coyotes, and human beings were also caught in behavior--and misbehavior--characteristic of their species. 72 color photographs.
