Introduction To Mammals and The 5 Felines of Guatemala

Our conference “Introduction to mammals and the 5 felines of Guatemala" was divided into two modules. The first was in charge of our special guest MSc. Pilar Negreros, who gave us the topic “Meeting the mammals" where she spoke about general aspects of mammals, such as their evolution, defense mechanisms, reproduction, and diversity of mammals. The second module was in charge of Dr. Nicholas Hellmuth, who gave us the topic “The 5 felines of the Mayan Culture" where he shared different photographs of the 5 felines (Jaguar, Puma, Ocelot, Margay, and Jaguarundi); their attributes to the Mayan Culture and its physical differences.
