Declared natural reserve and natural world heritage by Unesco, the 230000 km² of Pantanal are ruled by water cycle. During the rainy season, from november to may, Pantanal becomes the larger humid land on earth because of the floods. The animals must then take refuges in higher grounds. It becomes hardly possible to move without a boat.
During dry season, the water pulls back, only leaving here and there a few ponds where numerous fishes get trapped. This food supply ensure the reproduction cycle of all and especially the migratory birds.
