Security cameras recorded the moment when howling was heard in the vicinity of the Popocatépetl volcano. In videos spread on social networks, the sounds of the supposed animals can be heard, although so far it is unknown if it was one or more.
The video was captured at 6:34 p.m. on Friday, December 1, by one of the cameras pointing towards Popocatépetl, in the view towards Altzomoni, in the State of Mexico.
Some social media users pointed out that the howls could have been made by coyotes or wolves. In this regard, the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (Conanp) points out that within the Iztaccíhuatl-Popocatépetl national park, there are a large number of species of flora and fauna such as Castilian or mountain rabbit, Badger rabbit, Mouse, Shrew, Red-tailed falcon, California Flycatcher, Wren Vireo, Wood Sparrow, Great Horned Owl, Popocatepetl Alicante Lizard, Plain Scaly Lizard, Chintete, Lizard, Southern Mexican Striped Snake, Rattlesnake, Leprous Tlaconete, Plump Tlaconete, Pinto Salamander, Flat-footed Salamander, Axolotl, Frog.
Izta-Popo was declared a National Park on November 8, 1935, and in 2010 UNESCO classified it as a Biosphere Reserve with a larger surface area of 172 thousand hectares. And although coyotes and wolves are not endemic species, there are conditions for them to live in that reserve.
