Release of baby tamandua

The area for the release had to be carefully selected due to the hurricane impact (August 2016, right after Hurricane Earl). Criteria- far from humans, abundances of food and water, climbing vines and strong trees, cohune palms and again remoteness from Highways or villages. This is the same baby tamandua that arrived with broken arm, saved by the farmers in Spanish look out. She had surgery, metal pin was inserted to hold the bones while healing for 6 week, then pin was removed and special care was taken for another 2 weeks,, and finally- after 10 weeks of care- she showed us how strong and confident she was- all pics show you that she went easily all the way up to 20 feet above ground. She was not stressed, her wild instincts were all there, she was behaving just like regular healthy tamandua would. While in rehab she gained significant size, muscles and became 8lbs of pure strength animal. Thank you all, who were involved.
