Mammals

Of the 239 mammals that exist in Costa Rica, some species of large animals are in danger of extinction, due to the destruction of habitat and indiscriminate hunting. In San Gerardo de Rivas one can find from the most common mammals such as the Guatuza (Dasyprocta punctata) and Coati (Nasua narica) to the more elusive Puma (Puma concolor) and Tayra (Herparlurus yaguarondi).
