  • PHANTOM CAT

ABOUT THE SHOW

South America’s Pantanal is one of the world’s last natural paradises. Vast wetlands offer plenty of water, food and shelter to a rich variety of plants and animals including the capybara, macaws, giant otter, and caiman – as well as the most elusive of them all – the jaguar. Christian Baumeister has always dreamed of filming this mysterious big cat, but finding one in the vast Pantanal is like looking for a needle in a haystack – in the dark. But Baumeister won’t be satisfied with just any footage. He wants to film a jaguar as it goes up against one of its fiercest foes: the caiman. It’s mammal versus reptile as these two super predators pit their strength, speed and stealth against each other and Baumeister will do anything and go anywhere to see it first-hand.
