About the size of a fox, these jungle canines are incredibly difficult to spot. In fact, a journey to the Amazon is far more likely to yield a jaguar sighting than a glimpse of a wild short-eared dog. In late May, 2014, conservation biologist Lary Reeves set up a camera trap near a white-lipped peccary carcass. Wanting to record what he'd heard was a "king vulture fiesta" at the carcass, Reeves braved the rampaging insects and rancid stench to set the camera a few feet from the carcass.
