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.

Description

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.

Location approximate.

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.
