A herd of white-lipped peccaries (Tayassu pecari) dashes across the trail near Chan Chich. I'm more accustomed to them hanging out in front of the camera for awhile (see earlier post on white-lips), checking things out. The caution shown here makes me wonder if they are concerned about a predator in the area. Possibly a jaguar, known to follow peccary herds?
