Quantcast

Dia 26/05 tive um treinamento às 08:30h no Eldorado. Saí de casa mais cedo, por volta das 06:30h, com o objetivo de procurar o mocho-dos-banhados.

Ano passado eu vi um casal de mocho lá dentro da unicamp, ao lado do Instituto Eldorado. Depois nunca mais vi o bicho. Porém essa semana, fiquei sabendo que ele continua em Campinas, nas proximidades da Unicamp.

A manhã não estava boa, muita neblina cobria boa parte de Campinas. Procurei o bicho, e nada.

Fui para o treinamento, e na saída, dei uma volta pela Unicamp, quando me deparei com um carcará sobre um saco de lixo. Achei curioso e resolvi parar.

O bicho começou a furar o saco de lixo, até conseguir tirar restos do que parecia ser um marmitex. Fiquei impressionado com sua capacidade de fuçar no lixo, abrí-lo até conseguir o que queria. Seguem fotos…
