Mountain goats are the most sure-footed creatures on the planet. Their sharp hooves allow them to easily scale cliffs and mountainsides -- but hooves aren't much use when they need to cross a treacherous mountain river. Experienced goats can cross river rapids with ease, but for a mountain kid, traversing whitecaps can be a frightful endeavor.
Wildlife wonderland: planning your trip to the Pantanal
Covering more than 210,000 sq km of central Brazil, eastern Bolivia and northeastern Paraguay, the Pantanal is the largest inland wetland on the planet. It boasts a biodiversity that’s the envy of everywhere, except perhaps the Amazon, and it’s the only place on earth where encounters with the majestic jaguar are more probable than possible. #lpcelebrazil
