Touring Vista De Sueños with the family – VIDEO
One day while visiting the project, Vista De Sueños, with two of my sons we ran into two Tyra’s. At first look they appeared to be mini Jaguars which when we looked it up we then thought that they might have been Jaguarundis. Apparently there is a species in the weasel family called the Tyra or (tolomuco) that are large in size but have huge busy tails and that is what gave them away. The large busy tails! They have to be the most rare animals we have seen in Costa Rica so far except for the Green Macaw I saw last year while visiting Costa Rica before we moved here.
Finding an animal such as this just emphasizes the need for us to create an Eco-friendly development where we have large green spaces that support the local wildlife and not cause them to completely relocate like so many developments here in Costa Rica do. Our green spaces cross back and forth through all phases of the project and will remain untouched except for small trails cut through the bushes so that future residents may also walk through these areas and experience the ‘jungle’ and perhaps catch a glimpse of the Mysterious Costa Rican Tyra!
