Mammals of Costa Rica

Anyone who’s interested Neotropical mammals (let’s face it – all mammal watchers) should check out this very cool video library by Jim Wolfe in Costa Rica:

Those of you who read my report from March may remember that Jim is trying to film all of Costa Rica’s mammal species in the wild. He’s made considerable progress toward this goal, amassing video of the vast majority of the country’s mammals ranging from large, familiar ones like Baird’s Tapir and Puma to the rare and obscure smaller species – think Sword-nosed Bat, Goldman’s Water Mouse, Sprightly Pygmy Rice Rat, and Blackish Small-eared Shrew. I’m pretty sure many of these species have never been filmed in the wild before, and he has remarkably good footage to boot. Enjoy!
