This afternoon I had a chance meeting with a tayra on the trail behind our house at Green Hills Butterfly Ranch
The omnivorous tayras are excellent climbers, their bushy tails help with balance. Tayras rely heavily on the power of smell when hunting; and, they will persistently pursue their prey once a location is established. Who needs ambush tactics when you are great at what you do right?
