“This trip exceeded all my expectations in the number of species seen and the quality of those sightings. We were not rushed and were able to “be” in the moment and appreciate the wonders of that ecosystem. This trips rates as one of my best expeditions. The weather was perfect which was an additional plus.”

“We were grateful for your willingness to provide a tour of Sao Paulo for us – and thrilled with the quality of the guide. Fernando was a true professional. We would be delighted to travel with him again as well.”

“We loved Rio and the Iguassu Falls were spectacular. The guides, Marcello in Rio, and Carlos Barros at Falls were very fine. Carlos was exceptional in making the tour of the Falls about wildlife and botany as well. Accommodations were great both in Rio (Ipanema Inn) and at the Falls (Hotel das Cataratas). All good suggestions by Daniel. Many thanks for T-shirts, caps, book and map!”

Pygmy Marmoset Smallest Monkey Pantanal Amazon Wildlife

The pygmy marmoset is a small New World monkey native to rainforests of the western Amazon Basin in South America. It is famous for being the smallest monkey and one of the smallest primates in the world at just over 3.5 oz. It is commonly found in evergreen and river edge forests and is a gum-feeding specialist.

Most of the pygmy marmoset population live in stable troops of two to nine individuals that includes a dominant male, a breeding female, and up to four successive litters of offspring. They communicate using a complex system including vocal, chemical, and visual signals. The female gives birth to twins twice a year and the parental care is shared among the group.

Green Anaconda South America Wildlife Pantanal

The green anaconda, also known as the common anaconda and water boa, is a non-venomous boa species native to South America. There are many species of this reptile, but the most common of these is the green anaconda.

The green anaconda can reach 17.1 ft long. More typical mature specimens reportedly can range up to 16.4 ft, with the females, at around a mean length of 15.1 ft, being much larger in adulthood than the male. Weights are less well studied, though will reportedly range from 66 to 154 lb in an average range adult.

Green anacondas are the heaviest, and largest, type of snake in the world, but only the second longest (the longest type of snake is the reticulated python).

They are hunted by men for their expensive skin as the demand of anaconda skin is very high in the fashion industry.
