This time of the year is when most animals are breeding. They might become shier but if you see mothers with their offspring, it's a double reward !

Tapirs (Tapirus terrestris, Anta) in a lake with several other birds ...

A mother caiman (Caiman crocodilus, Jacaré-do-Pantanal) guarding her offspring on a river bank ...

And the unique giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla, Tamanduá-bandeira)
carrying it's baby comfortably on the back !
