Resumen

Documentamos un encuentro ocasional entre las especies de carnívoros Lycalopex griseus y Conepatus chinga, usando cámaras trampa en el bosque mediterráneo nativo de la Cordillera de la Costa en Chile central. Se proporciona evidencia fotográfica del comportamiento agonístico exhibido por C. chinga, y de la reacción de L. griseus a esta interacción. En vista de la segregación incompleta de nichos y el solapamiento espacio-temporal en el uso del hábitat por ambas especies, nuestras observaciones contribuyen a una mejor comprensión de las interacciones y dinámicas ecológicas de la comunidad de carnívoros de este ecosistema.
