The image of a child swimming in a river and playing with two live adult jaguars has been recently circulating in social networks, the photograph has gone viral and many people have stated that the image is fake and has been edited with Photoshop or some sort of computer program. However, the photo is real and portrays a moment that the child lives constantly in his everyday life.
The image shows the child in the water with the two jaguars and a dog, it even seems that one of the felines is hugging him while the other looks at the camera.
The child that appears in the photo is Tiago Silveira from Brazil, and he has co-existed with these wild animals since he was a baby, as his two parents are biologists and they have kept him close to these two jaguars and other animals for years.
Regarding the photo, Tiago said: “Many other people like jaguars and want to meet them up close. It’s good to show some of my experience to those who have not been as lucky as me ”
Tiago’s parents help to coordinate a natural reserve of 50 hectares in their native Brazil, where several wild animals live and visitors are not allowed to enter, however they are experts in felines.
Even some of these jaguars grew up with Tiago and became friends, the parents of the child indicated that “It is part of their daily life, there is nothing strange in this” so the child was not in danger any second while the picture was taken.
