Pantanal

WWF Abstract

If you want to see the largest wetland in the Neotropics, the place to go is South America's Pantanal. Located in the heart of South America, near the borders of Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay, the Pantanal ecoregion contains rivers, lakes, oxbows, ponds, grasslands, and forests--all of which experience regular flooding. Living within this watery habitat is an incredible diversity of creatures, from jaguars to giant otters to anacondas to waterfowl.
