    Hi! Thanks for the very nice videos. I am from Brazil and that is true. Unfortunately, people now (since Bolsonaro got elected) are invading once protected areas such as, forests aside the rivers an water bodies and lakes (already small rain forests too) and using it for farming and housing... This year, we the PANTANAL (It mean SWAMP in portuguese) was so dry, that got on fire and burned hectares of protected land... It is a clear water mismanagement that led to this. The wild life here is getting scarce. Even in the zoo's.

    The clouded leopard of Asia is quite arboreal also, but more ocelot size. It can climb down a tree trunk headfirst. It's not a leopard at all, but a relative of extinct sabretooth cats. All are beautiful and must be saved.

    It would be great if, at the end of your videos, you could recommend a wildlife protection organisation that is working to protect the relevant animal that you have just reported on. In that way interested viewers could go directly to that website to contribute to the support of the animal; in this immediate case, margays in the wild. Thank you in advance for considering this suggestion. 🙏
