Hi iLCP friends! This is Morgan Heim @moheim. I’m a senior fellow at iLCP, and they’ve been nice enough to let my friend Sebastian Kennerknecht @pumapix and I take over their Instagram feed this week. We’ve been sharing all camera trap photos. And there’s a good reason for that besides them being cool! First though, I wanted to share with you one of my earliest and most beloved camera trap images. This is “Rip Ear.” He’s an extraordinarily rare fishing cat. There are only an estimated 3,000 a 3,500 left in the world. He bears a lot of scars, including, you guessed it, a ripped ear from battles to maintain his place as the king of his territory. He’s even survived a hunter’s snare. We know this because research cameras documented him with the wire still wrapped around his neck. He eventually succeeded in ridding himself of that as well. Fishing cats in Thailand are often hunted as they are seen often as pests, food or medicine. I can’t help but have mad respect for Rip Ear. He has survived so much, including his land being turned into industrial shrimp farms. You can’t help wanting to cheer him on. Thanks for making the fishing cat a part of your life. I hope you will google them and see more ways that this cat that loves water is such an amazing animal. If you want to learn how to take photos like this, consider joining Sebastian and I in Panama this spring for a super fun, super affordable 10-day adventure. We’ve got all the best kit for you to try out. And there are sooooo many animals waiting for their photo moment! The link is in iLCPs bio blurb at the top!
