The stunning wildlife of Pantanal, Brazil

The Pantanal is a tropical wetland and one of the world's largest wetland of any kind. Most of it lies within the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul, but it extends into Mato Grosso sprawling over an area estimated at 200.000 square meters. The floodplains are submerged during the rainy seasons for six months a year, nurturing an astonishing biologically diverse collection of aquatic plants and helping support a dense array of animal species.
