There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. 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.

Pecari (Tayassu tajacu)
Head and body length excluding the tail 80-98 cm
Height at the shoulders 50 cm
Weight 17-30 kg
They are very social animals that live in groups of 5 to 15 individuals, they are very important prey of Jaguars, they are very aggresive when cornered, Jaguars always attack the last pecari of the group from behind because they have been known to attack Jaguars in groups and can really do a lot of damage. They can be dangerous to humans too, many hunters need to go high in a tree to avoid them and they wait sometimes for 20 minutes under the tree..
