Face-Off

Face-Off Photo
For the first time, researchers in the Brazilian Pantanal have photographed white-lipped peccaries eating fish. These forest mammals are generally known as fruit-eaters, so conservationists were surprised to discover this behavior. Here, a peccary competes with a southern crested caracara for a limited stock of fish, trapped in small ponds created by receding waters in the Pantanal’s dry season.
