Females are smaller and slimmer, reaching 1.7 metres and 26 kilograms. It inhabits wetlands in South America east of the Andes, where it feeds on fish, crabs and snakes. Adults have been known to kill and eat caimans. It is primarily a visual hunter, and catches its prey in underwater chases. It lives in groups of up to 20 individuals. Photographed in the Brazilian Pantanal.

Amazon Basin, satellite image Featured Print

Amazon Basin, satellite image

Amazon Basin. Satellite image of the Amazon Basin (highlighted area) in northern South America. North is at top. Water is blue, and land is colour-coded according to elevation above sea level: dark green (sea level), pink (2000 metres), and white (4500 metres). The Amazon Basin, over 7 million square kilometres in area, is the drainage basin of the Amazon River and is the largest in the world. The source of the Amazon lies high in the Andes mountain (down left). The waters drain eastward through the vast Amazon Rainforest, emerging at the mouth of the Amazon (upper right). In 2007, a new source for the Amazon was reported in southern Peru, which would make the Amazon the world's longest river. This image combines Shuttle Radar Topography Data and HydroSHEDS river data.
