I typically won’t post such a bad photo – but then again, I typically don’t see such a rare animal!  These guys are usually nocturnal and rarely seen.

I always keep my camera ready to go by my chair except for today and it cost me a head on close-up. My camera wasn’t handy and then didn’t have a card in it, but still encouraging for future photo opps. I was pretty sure I have seen this guy at night with my flashlight, but I never could get a good look and thought it might be be a cotimundi.

  1. I am glad you posted the photo, Ron. It is a treat to have seen this rare animal in the wild (particularly from an Australian!) – and what a magnificent tail!
