Kaa-Iya National Park, Santa Cruz, Bolivia - October 11 2022
A legendary cat and the apex predator in South America. This grand male patrolled this stretch of gravel road through the endless chaco, stopping regularly to mark his territory. Here he has stopped to see what is blocking his journey forward. Soon he would venture away into the dense vegetation to avoid any potential conflict with us humans. Amazingly, we had three observations of Jaguars.
