A giant anteater is bottle-fed on a ranch in Brazil’s Pantanal region. The animal was orphaned as an infant and hand raised by ranch hands. For a while after its release, it returned for its regular feedings but it eventually ventured out on its own.
An endangered (IUCN) and federally endangered giant otter (Pteronura brasiliensis) surveys the surface of the Pixaim River in the Pantanal. This otter is from a family of seven adults which has been habituated over the years by tourists feeding them fish from their boats.
