The Coffee Shop – “An Unseen World” – camera trap footage of Amazon forest life

The Coffee Shop is an open thread-style discussion forum for human interest news of the day.

From United Nations:

‘An Unseen World’ is one of 5 films that won an Award at the International Forests Short Film Festival. The film weaves together camera trap footage taken on an Amazon Rainforest tributary located in the Madre de Dios region of Peru. It represents nature film making at its most raw and innovative – a stark drama of unfolding forest life as it happens. The film gives us a glimpse of the rich biodiversity of the region — from patrolling pumas and hunting jaguars to curious anteaters.


This is an open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments.  If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet.  Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.

  2. Hello off’bss! Amazing, isn’t it – the number and variety of critters visiting that one spot, and esp’lly that big cat arriving right after the fellow left. It had to be lurking in the periphery the whole time he was there. Yikes!
