    And it is in Mato Grosso State where great part of one of the most intriguing places in the Country is located: the Pantanal, the biggest floodable region in the world, where the succession between floods and ebb tides gives origin to a unique feeding chain, populating the region with a varied fauna. Cutting across the Pantanal, the Transpantaneira – a mud road, full of small wooden bridges – allowing a parade among birds and mammals of the region along the path.

    What incredible scale. I wonder how much of the Amazon is missing. Ah well, the world needs to be fed somehow. Anybody got a higher resolution version of this picture?
