Tapir tracks on the Los Fierros pampa road.
Solanum with a fallen fruit with bitemarks (perhaps not ripe?). Maned wolf tracks surround it, and this fruit occurs in about 1 in 5 maned wolf scats in this pampa.
Previously Callithrix argentata melanura, Callithrix melanura.
Fat basking rattlesnake on the Los Fierros pampa road. Rattle visible. Very happy that I did not see/step on one while working offroad in the pampa.
Giant anteater encounter. I was on the road that crosses the Los Fierros pampa, and stood still when it emerged from the vegetation, apparently undetected. The photo down the road, with just the tail visible, illustrates why a common name in Spanish is 'oso bandera.' The photo of a track is not from this sighting, but in the same area.
Curious eye-catching bug at Los Fierros camp.
Camera trap photo taken on Los Fierros road across pampa.
Curiously, my camera trap did not focus well on ocelot spots. Humidity is also at play in this particular shot, but blurry ocelot photos were a persistent occurrence.
Camera trap photo of a young Mazama taken at a mineral lick.
Camera trap photo taken at a depression where water would collect and remain in the dry season.
Check out the convergent coloration between marsh deer and maned wolves.
Camera trap photo taken in dry creekbed, just east of Los Fierros pampa in the forest.
Note the longer legs compared to the North American raccoon.
