A sun blessed morning for the first time in days, and we are able to observe and photograph a viscacha mother with a sizeable youngster still demanding milk. The camera trap team collects a total of twenty-two cameras from across the larger Puina valley. The team sifts through thousands of wind-triggered pictures with no animals but is elated to find two different Andean cat (Leopardus jacobita), as well as skunk (Conepatus chinga) and the European hare (Lepus europaeus), the latter a species introduced to Argentina and spreading north to Ecuador and beyond. All three are new records for the park, confirming the teams Andean cat sighting a couple of days ago.
