South America

 

 
The wilds of South America offer a variety of species including the guanaco, a cousin of the llama and the rhea a cousin of the ostrich. You’ll discover Maned Wolves that look like foxes on stilts and Patagonian Cavy’s who look more like jackrabbits than rodents. Don’t forget to stop by the Spider Monkey enclosure and see how these active animals use their tail as an extra arm.
