A guapo is a native species of Central America, endemic to the region.
Guapos have been found in the United States for thousands of years, but are now the subject of a new documentary.
“They’re just so mysterious,” says Dr. Mark Sussman, a native scientist and author of the book “Guapo in Spanish.”
“They’ve been found throughout the United Kingdom, in Germany, in Mexico.
They’re just amazing animals.
It’s just so hard to describe.
We just have to find out more.”
For the documentary, titled Guapo: The Guapo Is Not a Reptile, Sussmann traveled to the state of Guapo, home to some of the world’s most exotic animals, including the guapo.
He also documented the guapos’ daily lives.
“I’m in the field, and it’s like a zoo,” he says.
“Guapos are just wild animals, they’re not trained to be docile.”
They also are highly intelligent and can travel through thick jungle and water, and they are adept at using tools like rocks and logs.
“The guapo is one of the most intelligent and social animals that we know of, but they are just so elusive,” says Sussmans co-author and Guapo expert, Chris Lough.
“There’s no known way to catch a guapo, or even to put a collar on one, because they are so elusive.”
They can be found on all five continents, but the Guapo of the Pacific Northwest is most common in the Amazon Basin, where they have thrived for millennia.
Sussmen, who has been studying guapoes since 2004, says that while there have been a handful of captive-breeding guapoos, most of them have been destroyed by hunters and poachers.
“These animals are incredibly charismatic, so people don’t want to touch them, because it’s not worth the risk,” he explains.
“But I’ve never seen a human-to-human contact with one of these creatures, and I’ve been hunting these animals for decades, and yet I’ve only had one person come over to touch one of them.
It would have been amazing to have someone that’s actually come to know and appreciate these creatures.”
The documentary’s focus on the Guape is partly because of the incredible challenges that the animals face, including disease and malnutrition.
“We know that guaposes live in very small, isolated habitats, and many of them are found alone or in small groups,” Susssman says.
In order to survive in a large group, the Guapa have to live in an environment that is not very hospitable for them, and there is no natural predator that can kill them.
“So if you have a predator that you don’t know where the predator will come, then you can’t protect yourself,” he continues.
“If you have one predator that’s not too friendly, then the Gua are going to die from that.”
In the documentary’s first half, Sussedman also documented how guapas have adapted to survive on their own and in captivity.
“You’ll see guaposaurs that are completely independent,” he said.
“In their natural environment, they are completely self-sufficient, and are going through the same survival techniques as any other animal.”
Guapas are also extremely adaptable, Sommans explains.
Their body and skeleton adapt to their habitat, and to any type of environmental conditions, he says, “They can live in any kind of environment.
You’ll see them living in the wild and living in urban areas.”
In addition to their natural habitat, the guas also find ways to adapt to urban environments.
“It’s kind of like the perfect storm for guapism,” Sommers says.
For example, the animals live in a variety of urban environments, from the city to the suburbs, but there is one common thread among all of these environments: “They all have the same habitat, but that’s where the gua live,” he adds.
The guapose’s diet depends on their habitat. “
Every guapa has its own unique life style and their own set of adaptations to that environment, and that is the same in all of them.”
The guapose’s diet depends on their habitat.
For Suss, “The way that they live is really quite unique,” he observes.
“All of them will have different food sources, different food types, different habitat types, and then their diets are basically based on that, because if you don, then your food isn’t going to be there for them.
They eat mostly leaf litter, insects, frogs, snakes, fish, and plants.”
The Guapoes’ diet also depends on what kind of food they eat.
“When they are in their dens, they eat lots of fruits and vegetables, and when they are at sea, they also eat
