Watching Jaguars

Sharp teeth, but might do with a brush?

Lunch, yum yum.
These cats like swimming

Maybe lunch is there?

The Pantanal are is so full of wildlife and the Jaguars are just extraordinary. They are totally wild, but used to people in boats so you get a chance to get fairly close, and then watch their lives! Sleeping, easting or at least trying to catch lunch.

And the river otters, amazing birds, just so much tro see. In between scratching where the mozzies have bitten.



Pantanal ‘Proper’.

One of the 121 bridges we had to cross. A tad dangerous.
Snail Kite. You can see why it has that name!

The End of the Transpantinera. Now the river.
Partners for life.
Our first Jaguar. A female cib, 18 months old. Yea!
Hunting, but no catch.
Relax time.

Our trip to the next lodge, down the Transpantineira by cattle truck. Well, it says safari on it, but it feels like it has no suspension. But, amazing animal life. Capibara, caimen, and huge numbers of birds. Every colour known to man, and a few more. And we have entered Jaguar territory.

Just inctedible.

All the photos of animals are fully ‘wild’, no animal parks, no idea what we will see.
