Meet the Jaguarundi! As part of our partnership with the Belize Zoo, we recently adopted a jaguarundi! If you have never heard of the “Otter Cats of Belize”, don’t worry – neither did we until we started visiting the Zoo! This strange, weasel-like feline is a jaguarundi, one of the five wild cat species found in Belize. With a range extending from Mexico to Argentina, the jaguarundi is highly adaptable in its habitats, and can be found in jungles, savannahs, and swamps. Amazingly, jaguarundis have their own “language” of at least thirteen unique sounds- described as chirps, whistles, purrs, and chatters- that they use to communicate with each other.

Cougar or Mountain Lion? Actually, in Belize, these beautiful cats are called pumas. Pumas are one of the largest of Belize’s wild cats, second only to jaguars. Pumas can be found from Canada, Alaska, and the western United States all the way to Chile, and are adapted to a variety of environments, from deserts and shrublands to rainforests such as those found in Belize. Similar to jaguars, pumas are solitary, with males establishing large territories that can measure over one hundred square miles.
We adopted a puma to help support the Belize Zoo in its conservation efforts. The process is easy, and costs just $75 for a full year! Use the button below to learn more.
