Brazil & The Pantanal

Welcome to my Brazil and Pantanal photo gallery.
In July of 2007 we traveled to The Pantanal a remote section of western central Brazil. The Pantanal covers an area about 80,000 square miles and is composed of tropical savannah, forest, rivers and lagoons. It is sometimes described as the largest fresh water marsh on earth and is akin to a huge Delta that empties to no-where, as most of the water is trapped until the dry season.

The Pantanal has two very distinct seasons. The rainy season begins in October and lasts till early April during this time much of the land is covered by water. In the dry season of April thru September the water receeds creating a new life cycle of vast grass lands with scattered lakes and lagoons. As you would suspect this radical shift in seasons creates an enviornment rich in biological diversity with over 650 bird species as well as many other unique creatures such as Jaguars, Capybaras, Giant Anteaters, Sloths, Tapirs, Anacondas, Caimans, Giant River Otters, Coatis, Deer, Wolves and many species of Bats. In addition the region has many species of freshwater tropical fish including Piranhas.

In the below gallery I have posted some of my favorite images from the trip. I hope you enjoy!
