These photos were taken in a brazilian park protected by environmental laws, "Serra da Canastra National Park". The habitat is characterized by a mountain-shaped plateau, like a tree trunk cut, vegetation of altitude field, highland tropical climate, high humidity and frequent rains. The park has a rare beauty for nature lovers. It houses numerous species of fauna and flora typical of the Brazilian cerrado environment, such as "maned wolf", "anteater", "pampas deer", several hawks, exotic birds, some endangered species such as the loon duck and the giant armadillo and lush flowers as the "Sempre Viva". The water springs are essential for the proliferation of the vast wildlife. Many streams fall from the plateau and form amazing waterfalls with over 180 meters of free fall. The site has complete infrastructure to accommodate nature lovers, with several hotels and guide services.
