Incredible Footage: Photographer Captures Stunning Video of a Mountain Lion in Action in South America

Last week, a photographer captured stunning footage of a mountain lion hunting in South America

Wildlife photographer Aaron Baggenstos was in the right place at the right time last week. On May 9, Baggenstos was leading a “Pumas of Patagonia” trip through his company Aaron’s Photo Tours, when he happened upon an intense wildlife interaction—a mountain lion attempting to take down a guanaco.

“I had the immense privilege of witnessing and filming one of the most unforgettable events of my career,” wrote Baggenstos in an Instagram post.

“This heart-pounding chase showcases an incredible display of skill, strength, and survival instincts as these two species engage in an age-old dance that epitomizes life in the wild. Prepare to be amazed by this epic puma-guanaco hunt captured in the stunning wilds of Patagonia.”

According to National Geographic, guanacos are related to camels, llamas, and alpacas. The wild critters live in the high country of the Ande Mountains in South America. They’re herbivores known to form herds of up to 50 individuals. Guanacos can weigh up to 265 pounds, while mountain lions typically top out at around 220 pounds.
