White-lipped Peccaries

Caption: Veterinarians from the Wildlife Conservation Society and its partners have conducted one of the first health assessments of white-lipped peccaries in Brazil's Pantanal. The study was an effort to gauge the impact of Leptospirosis -- a zoonotic bacteria that affects a wide range of animals as well as humans -- on wildlife and livestock.
