This little piggy....

By mickrick
While tramping and camping in the Pantanal, in western Brasil, one of our guides ran down this wild peccary. The pig was not well pleased to see us, but after being shown off to the tourists he was sent on his way. I guess when the tourists aren't around he'd end up over the fire!
The Pantanal is a flood plain on the boder with Bolivia. The run-off from the Andes at the end of the wet season drives the animals onto the high islands.
