Tayra (Eira barbara), also spelled taira, are weasel-like mammals of tropical forests from southern Mexico through South America to northern Argentina. Here one climbs a very large Pochote tree in search of the Ctenosaura that reside in the macaws nest. Observe this sly animal smell its way through the tree in search of any easy feeding opportunity.
These family of the mink, otter, weasels of all sorts are beautiful, graceful expressions of natural balance. It is rare to see these animals in broad daylight unless there is little to no noises from humans or domesticated animals around.
Silence is Golden allows us to see the Truth of the environments health versus its reaction to our encroachments. During the day and night our “nature communities” produce many disturbances so that sightings of these creatures have become a novelty, this is however a symptom of our paranoid habits. Overlighting properties at night is one of the most harmful ways to affect animals and plants but what would we know, we are for the most part asleep, metaphorically speaking. During the day we work and build our “colony” but there is life out there, a lot of variety watching us if we’re lucky. If we are even luckier we will occasionally see it too but just because we live in the jungle does not mean you will have that jungle wildlife experience. You have to change your behaviours in all the ways you can imagine and more if you are to be a positive impact on your surroundings.
Challenging the way we live in our homes and operate our business and lifestyles can have a profound affect on the peace of Nature around us waiting to envelop us in Her amazing Kaleidoscope of Life if we let go of our fears, even if just technically speaking.
