An elusive carnivore

Javier López de Luzuriaga (left) and Aritz Gonzalez (right) are sniffing out an elusive carnivore in the Basque region of Spain.

On the forested mountain slopes of the Basque country, two Spanish biologists are on the track of a pair of secretive mammals. This story is part of the audio series One Species at a Time, and is scheduled to air on Living on Earth soon.

This kind of giant oak tree has been home to generations of pine martens...

...and it can fit up to 14 people.
