                     Looking for jaguars in Pantanal                      

Pantanal spreads out over more than 200 000 km² between Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. It is probably the richest ecosystem on Earth for both its flora and its fauna. It is a must-see region to observe many bird species as well as mammals such as the jaguar, which can reach 2 m (6'7'') long for 85 cm (2'9'') in height and can weight up to 120kg (265 pounds). It is a perfect trip for adventurers and nature lovers who wish to discover an isolated part of the world that is little known to the public and to meet the jaguar. An experience you won't forget.
