We saw quite a lot of babies which squeaked up to us and then we had to dash as the mum came down the tree to get rid of ...
... The most impressive bird here is the Jabiru stork, the symbol of the Pantanal, with an 8 foot wingspan.
The caimans are very numerous and while they look like small crocodiles, they pose little to no threat to humans. We stopped the boat at a small island where several caimans were sunning themselves but they slithered into the water immediately when we got out of the boat.
