A Collared Anteater in Jaguar Country

Clip: Season 1 | 2m 53s | Video has closed captioning.

The oven-like temperatures of the dry season bring a mother jaguar and her cub to the local watering hole for an afternoon drink. Normally nocturnal, they prefer to rest in the shade of trees during the heat of the day and hunt at night. Nearby, a southern tamandua – also known as the collared anteater – digs up a snack with its powerful claws. While the cats sleep, the tamandua is hard at work.
