New Trip Report – Brazil

Phil Telfer has just sent through an exciting report of a trip to Brazil- 2 weeks with 30 or more species, the highlight though most undoubtedly a Giant Armadillo! As well as a Margay, Yellow and Southern Naked-tailed Armadillos, White-lipped Peccaries, Jaguar and more.

    Awesome report Phil. Just makes me want to head to the Pantanal even more now.

    WOW… Whan an amazing report – it makes my trip report from 2009 (which I was really proud of at the time) look pretty embarassing.. lol.

    I know for Jon the Giant Armadillo is clearly the highlight. But for us simpler people ( 😛 ) Maned Wolf, Margay, Puma, Jaguar, Giant Anteater, Ocelot and the Southern Tamandua are all the highlights as well 🙂

    ha ha… I have been obsessed with Giant Armadillos since I saw a photo of one last time I was in the Pantanal. They look like they should be on Fraggle Rock. They are on my top 10 bucket list at the moment.

    I think you mentioned that before..
    I’m not even allowed to make a “top 10” bucket list since I still haven’t been to Australia, Tropical Asia or Africa. Though the latter is being at the end of this upcoming February.

    But if I was allowed to make one, I’m sure clouded leopard, snow leopard, margay, bush dog and at least 1 pangolin would be on there. (As would tiger, all other cats besides the 3 I’ve seen, all the australian mammals, the lemurs… arghhh. Thank god I’m only 27)

    The Pantanal is one of my all-time favourite destinations, though I have only been once because I want to take my OH back when I return. 🙂
