It is some years since local naturalist and photographer Bob Wilkin gave us his account of his successful quest for the Snow Leopard in the Himalayas. This time he has ventured into the much warmer climes of the riparian forests and wetlands of the Brazilian Pantanal in search of the equally elusive Jaguar and Giant Otter. Bob will describe his search and the other creatures seen on his journey including mammals such as Ocelot, Tapir and Armadillo as well as 138 species of birds and many reptiles.
