NATURE/WILDLIFE

Pantanal

Brazil Safari

 

Pantanal is the Brazil Safari destination. Composed by a “complex of ecosystems”, the Pantanal wildlife shelters a wide and incredible variety of fauna and flora. More than diversity, the Pantanal wildlife density impresses and attracts naturalists, photographers and people from all around the world. To date, it has been recorded 124 mammal species, 463 birds, 177 reptiles, 41 amphibians, 325 fishes and numbers persist to increase as the Pantanal wildlife is still poorly known, studied and explored.

Pantanal wildlife has many flagship species, and the most famous is the Pantanal jaguar (Panthera onca palustris), which can reach 135kg – the third largest cat in the world! But the jaguar is only one in plenty quite interesting species you can find in Pantanal wildlife, like the giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), the giant river otter (Ptenonura brasiliensis), South American tapir (Tapirus terrestris), caimans (Caiman crocodiles yacare), capybaras (Hydrochaeris hydrochaerys), howler monkeys (Alouatta caraya), pumas (Puma concolor), anacondas (Eunectes murinus) marsh and pampas dears (Blastocerus dichotomus & Ozotoceros bezoarticus), crab-eating fox (Cerdocyon thous), South American coati (Nasua nasua), white-lipped peccaries (Tayassu pecari) and so many more we cannot describe all here. And we have not started to talk about bird or fish species… That’s why Pantanal is considered the Brazil Safaris destination.

Pantanal flora

The considerable variety of vegetation types makes the Pantanal wetland a rich mosaic of landscapes that can be known only during a Pantanal tour. Permanently-flooded areas (baías & corixos) surrounded by higher islands of forests (capões & cordilheiras), open grasslands (campos limpos), seasonally inundated low-lying areas (vazantes), gallery forests, aquatic systems and other habitats displays a fantastic diversity of plants both from land and water.

Some dominant species of trees in the Pantanal are particularly well-known and shows up their beautiful shapes and colored flowers at different times of the year, like the piúvas (Tabebuia sp.) and cambarás (Vochysia divergens). Many others are remarkable for its fruits or medicinal properties. Water lilies and plants of the swamplands grows back every year on the Pantanal seasonal wet cycle. All of them have a very important state on this fragile and interdependent life system helping to keep the balance and richness of the Pantanal environment. On a Pantanal tour its possible to appreciate all the beauties of Pantanal flora.
