Brazil: Pantanal

Our expediton to the Pantanal in Brazil in August of 2013 was primarily to look for, and to photograph, jaguars.  The Pantanal is a 50,000 square mile wetlands, the largest in the world (half the size of California), and is home to not only jaguars, but hundreds of species of birds, over 10 million caiman (a species of crocodile), the largest rodent in the world (the capybara), and the giant river otter. 

Not only did we have the luck to see jaguars every day, but we also witnessed one of the most unique sightings we could ever have imagined: a jaguar stalking and successfully killing a full grown caiman. We are thrilled to have not only photos, but a video of this amazing event.
