A male guiña (Leopardus guigna guigna) from Fauna Andina in central-south, Chile.

He has only three legs, having lost one in a trapper’s snare. He was brought here to be taken care of by the Chilean Wildlife Authority.

Despite the loss of his front leg, he moves around well and has a good life here at Fauna Andina, a wildlife conservation and research center in Chile. Their goal is to protect wildlife through study and, captive breeding and release back into the wild.

The guiña has the smallest distribution of any wild cat on the planet. This makes it very susceptible to being endangered.

The Fauna Andina conservation center near is the only known center that’s ever bred this species in captivity.
