The Pantanal cat ("Leopardus
") is a small cat native to tropical South America. It is named after the Pantanal wetlands in central South America, but mainly inhabits grassland, shrubland, savannas and deciduous forests. It has traditionally been treated as a subspecies of the larger colocolo, but was split primarily based on differences in pelage colour/pattern and cranial measurements. This split is not supported by genetic work.
The colocolo ("Leopardus colocolo") is a small spotted and striped cat native to the west Andean slope in central and northern Chile. Until recently, it included the more widespread Pampas cat ("L. pajeros") and Pantanal cat ("L.
"), and some maintain these as subspecies of the colocolo. Confusingly, when these are treated as subspecies of the colocolo, the "combined" species is sometimes referred to as the Pampas cat.
Two subspecies can be identified on the basis of their coat pattern. "L. b.
" is almost entirely rusty-brown with faint spots, continuous bands and a prominent black tip on the tail, and all-black feet. "L. b. munoai" is paler and more yellowish, has flank spots that are browner and more distinct, feet that are only black on the soles, and discontinuous rings and a narrow black tip on the tail.
The Kauai ōō or ōōāā (Moho
) is a member of the extinct genus of the ōōs ("Moho") within the extinct family Mohoidae from the islands of Hawai'i. It was previously regarded as member of the Australo-Pacific honeyeaters ("Meliphagidae"). This bird was endemic to the island of Kauai. It was common in the subtropical forests of the island until the early twentieth century, when its decline began. Its song was last heard in 1987 and it is now probably extinct. The causes of its extinction include the introduction of the Polynesian rat, domestic pig, and mosquitoes carrying avian disease (avian malaria and avian pox), as well as habitat destruction.
David Boynton (1945–2007) was a leading expert on the natural history of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, especially on the Koke'e Forest and the Alakai Swamp and its wildlife. He was called "a voice for the Hawaiian wilderness," a "Guardian of the Koke'e Forest," and as an educator, "the window through which thousands of Hawai'i students learned about Hawaiian birds, plants, marine creatures, climate and much more." Boynton photographed a bird now believed extinct, the Ōōāā ("Moho
"). He recorded the mating call of the single male, whose mate presumably did not survive Hurricane Iwa at the end of 1982. The bird, probably the last of its species, was tending an empty nest.
