well, not exactly. but my amiga vieja irene in tucson sent me this exciting article about two jaguar sightings, one in arizona and one in mexico. que fantastico!!!!! in the early 1980s, when i was studying ecology & evolutionary biology at the university of arizona, one of my mammalogy field trips was a long weekend at organ pipe national monument. during our stay, someone discovered a set of large, i mean large cat tracks. plaster casts were taken, and it was later deduced that they were jaguar prints, probably a stray from mexico, since we were only a few miles from the border. what a thrill that was.
