Animal Lists May 25, 2011

Posted by pcerwatersystems in Community.

We’ve been really lucky this trip to come down in a very active time for animals.  Last year, we were here during a time when the water level was much lower.  Because of this, it seemed as though many animals concentrated along and around the river area (40km away from the site.)  This year the water is still high, giving many animal water highways to maneuver throughout a larger landscape.  Below is a partial list of the animals we have been lucky to see:

  • Jaguar
  • Giant River Otters
  • Neotropical Otter
  • Ocelot
  • Pantanal Horse (only horse in the world that can feed with its head underwater)
  • Caiman
  • Many small snakes
  • Caiman Lizards
  • Hyacinth Macaw
  • Jaburu
  • Toco Toucan
  • Snail Kite
  • Piranha
  • Capybara
  • Various Vultures
  • Soldier Ants
  • Various Ducks
  • More birds than I can remember the names for.
