Mating Jaguars – Pantanal, Brazil 2015

Mating Jaguars. On this trip we had many superb encounters with the icon species of the Pantanal: the Jaguar. These large and very powerful cats hunt primarily for Capybara and Caiman along the river banks. They stalk their prey until they are close enough to pounce. They are adept swimmers and can be seen crossing the large rivers in this region.
