Brazilian Pantanal

The Pantanal is considered one of the largest continuous humid extension of the planet, spread over three countries in South America: Paraguay, Bolivia and Brazil. It is an alluvial plain influenced by rivers that drain the Upper Paraguay River Basin, and the Paraguay River the main river to drain the region after the rainy season.

The Pantanal is under direct influence of three major biomes: Amazon, Cerrado and Atlantic Forest. Also influenced the biome Chaco (name given to the Pantanal located in northern Paraguay and eastern Bolivia). An interesting feature of this biome is that many threatened species in other regions of Brazil persist in large populations in the region, such as the Jabiru – Pantanal bird symbol.

The Pantanal ecosystem is very diverse, harboring a lot of animals, living in perfect ecological balance. Studies indicate that the biome harbors the following numbers of described species: 263 species of fish, 41 species of amphibians, 113 species of reptiles, 463 species of birds and 132 species of mammals and 2 endemic. Nearly two thousand species of plants have been identified in the biome and classified according to their potential, and some have powerful medicinal potential.
