Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Never recorded before? A jaguar mum & her cub pose briefly on to of the Piquiri River bank before melting into the jungle with the neotropical river otter (Lontra longicaudis) she has just killed in the river below.
According to every guide I spoke to in the Pantanal this has never been seen before, let alone captured photographically.
Thanks to the awesome spotting skills of my river guide @arrudabranco and partner in crime @christianbrunskill we captured the (brief) moments for posterity!
We put in long hard hours on the river over the past nine days, but with four different jaguar kills and plenty of other superb photo opportunities it was time well spent.
Join us on one of our future action-packed photo safaris for some of the very best action wildlife you will ever experience.

On Wednesday morning on the Rio Piquiri I, alongside my good friend Daryl Balfour, managed to photograph a very rare event in the life of the jaguar. We were coming downriver around ten o’clock after visiting the Pousada Piquiri when my assistant Branco Arruda spotted a young jaguar cub high up on the riverbank. As we approached, he spotted a second cat in the shallows of the river, it was the cub’s mother who was in the process of dispatching a neotropical river otter. With the boat bobbing up and down on the choppy water, I shot three sharp images, with both jaguar and otter visible, of this as yet visually unrecorded piece of predatory behaviour.

"Our golden goddess Nicte Ha takes a deep breath after the physical effort of the hunting activity inside her Wildlife Simulator.

A very important part of their Re-Wilding Program of these jaguars is the fact that they need learn to hunt big mammals as white tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and collared peccary (Pecari tajacu), both species aren’t in any risk category, and are notoriously relevant preys for the jaguar in the wild.
This process requires one last pre-liberation enclosure inside their liberation area where they will be for a few weeks before they are released in the nature.
We still working everyday to make it happen. ?"

I have seen some people seriously underestimate the sheer strength of jaguars. Only lions and tigers can beat them in the cat family

Naturalist and president, Theodore Roosevelt gave an account where a jaguar killed a horse and dragged it for a 1609 metres.

"It is a thirty brute, and if it kills far from water will often drag its victim a long distance toward a pond or stream ; Colonel Randon had once come across a horse which a jaguar had thus killed and dragged for a mile."

Those were the same female jaguar and the same caiman that some people shared a while ago.
