What is a "tayra"?

The tayra, also known as the "tolomuco" or "Eira barbara," is a mammal that belongs to the weasel family and is native to Central and South America. It has a slender body with a dark, glossy coat that is usually dark brown or black in color, and its long, bushy tail adds to its distinctive appearance. The tayra has sharp claws and teeth, which it uses for hunting and climbing trees. It is an omnivorous species, feeding on a variety of food including fruits, insects, small mammals, birds, and eggs. Tayras are known for their agility and speed, making them excellent climbers and skilled hunters. They are primarily found in forests and tropical regions, and are known for their curious and bold behavior. Tayras are considered important for ecosystem balance as they help control populations of small mammals and insects in their habitat.
