In this photo there is a puma stalking a deer: Are you able to see it?
In nature, one of the keys to successful survival of species, both predators and their potential targets, lies in their ability to camouflage themselves with the landscape.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has shared an image that is proof of just how impressive the animals’ ability to mimic their environment is.
It was captured in a forest in the Rio Mora nature reservein the state of New Mexico. The image shows the back of a deer feeding or watering, unaware that a predator is lurking nearby.
Indeed, in the photo you can see the head of a pumaone of the main felines of North America, stalking the animal. It is almost impossible to see it with the naked eye, but above is an enlargement.
The mountain lion, also known as the mountain lion or American lion, lives in more places than any other terrestrial wild mammal on the continent, ranging from the Yukon, Canadato the south of the Andes Mountains and Patagonia in South America.
It is the second largest feline in the Americas, after the jaguar, and the fourth largest in the world, after the tiger and the lion.
