THE PANTANAL

The Pantanal is a natural region encompassing the world's largest tropical wetland area. Is a huge, gently-sloped basin that receives runoff from the upland areas and slowly releases the water through the Paraguay River and tributaries.

Floodplain ecosystems such as the Pantanal are defined by their seasonal inundation and desiccation. Annual rainfall over the flood basin is between 1,000 and 1,500 mm (39 and 59 in), with most rainfall occurring between November and March.

The vegetation of the Pantanal is a mixture of plant communities typical of a variety of surrounding biome regions: these include moist tropical Amazonian rainforest plants, semiarid woodland plants typical of northeast Brazil, Brazilian cerrado savanna plants and plants of the Chaco savannas of Bolivia and Paraguay.

Among the animals to inhabit the wetland of the Pantanal are the Marsh Deer (Blastocerus dichotomus), the Giant Otter (Pteroneura brasiliansis), the Tapir (Tapirus terrestris), the Giant Anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), the Capybara (hydrochoerus hydrochaeris), the Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) and the Yacare (Caiman yacare).

In addition to the Yacare, some of the reptiles that inhabit the Pantanal are the Yellow Anaconda (Eunectes notaeus), the Gold Tegu (Tupinambis teguixin) the Red-footed Tortoise (Geochelone carbonaria) and the Green Iguana (Iguana iguana).

The Pantanal region includes essential sanctuaries for migratory birds, critical nursery grounds for aquatic life, and refuges for such creatures as the yacare, mash deer and jaguar.
