Costa Rica: Wildlife under the Rainbow
The tropical climate and varied topography of Costa Rica have fostered exceptional biodiversity, with wildlife from both North and South America. From the peaks of volcanoes down to the Pacific and Caribbean shores. Discover the life of 90 of the most remarkable animals in this remarkable country.

Wild Life - Costa Rica Wilderness

The Wildlife of Costa Rica comprises all naturally occurring animals, fungi and plants that reside in this Central American country. Costa Rica supports an enormous variety of wildlife, due in large part to its geographic position between the North and South American continents, its neotropical climate, and its wide variety of habitats. Costa Rica is home to more than 500,000 species, which represents nearly 4% of the total species estimated worldwide, making Costa Rica one of the 20 countries with the highest biodiversity in the world. Of these 500,000 species, a little more than 300,000 are insects.[1]
One of the principal sources of Costa Rica's biodiversity is that the country, together with the land now considered Panama, formed a bridge connecting the North and South American continents approximately three to five million years ago. This bridge allowed the very different flora and fauna of the two continents to mix

Wild cats that exist in Costa Rica are: jaguars, ocelots, pumas, jaguarundi, margays, and little spotted cats.
Most big cats in Costa Rica are nocturnal or hide in trees in the rainforest like the margay. The most likely place to find a big cat is in the Simon Bolivar Zoo in San José, Costa Rica where there is a selection of all the native big cats along with other animals. Ocelots usually hunt on the ground at night and rarely climb trees. An ocelot's diet consists of birds, monkeys, rats, and other small animals. The little small cat is the smallest wild cat and does not grow bigger than a house cat. They live in cloud forests up to 3200 m.
The jaguar is the largest wild cat in Costa Rica and can grow up to 2 m. They are very rare in Costa Rica and their numbers continue to decline drastically. The jaguarundi looks like a cross between a weasel and a cat. It is plain grey with a sleek body, hunts day and night, and has adapted best to human changes. The margay spends most of its life in trees and is the best cat climber because it can twist its ankle 180°. The puma is the second largest cat in Central America and its fur is brown and unspotted.

Costa Rican Wildlife

Marcos Garcia, a local Costa Rican farmer and entrepreneur that we met in the small farming community of Mastatal, Costa Rica, was happy to show us some of the most beautiful things about Costa Rica. On a quick afternoon hike and while hanging out on his farm, Siempre Verde, we saw countless birds, lizards and insects. This video is a summary of what we saw in a very short amount of time!

In addition to operating a sustainable farm and teaching Spanish, Marcos is an excellent tour guide and wildlife interpreter. We wouldn't have seen half of these things without his guidance!
