Greetings from Brazil!
As you know, a large part of our work with giant armadillos and giant anteaters involves the use of camera traps. As well as capturing great images of these two species, we inevitably get lots of images of some of the many other incredible animals that share their Pantanal habitat and make use of giant armadillo burrows. This is one of my favourite updates every year, as well as a great showcase of the region's wonderful biodiversity , some of the images can't help but put a smile on your face. Enjoy!

All the best from Brazil!
