Easily the biggest country in South America, Brazil is also the largest Portuguese speaking country in the world. It is home to the Amazon Forest famed for both its size and the rate of its destruction. It is within that vast forest, so rumour has it, that the hidden city of Z lies, or so Colonel Percy Fawcett thought; it was while searching for this hidden city that he disappeared in 1925. Unsurprisingly for a country of its size Brazil does have its own collection of cryptids and today we are going to look at the Caiteto Munde.
The pig-like ungulate, the Caiteto Munde, is described as being 3 feet long and 20 inches tall at the shoulder. It is said to live in pairs and occasionally in groups of up to four animals, unlike peccaries, which tend to have larger herds.
Maybe not an interesting creature to draw your attention to but it does give you an idea of some of the interesting but uninspiring creatures that await discovery. Next we are heading north into a little bit of France located in South America, and that is, of course, French Guiana.
