It's not just about tango and steaks, Argentina is rich in wildlife.
Home to monkeys, maned wolves, capybaras, river otters and much, much more
That's not all..... there's more
The Andean flamingo, a rare bird indeed, is native to the north west high Andes. They are distinguished from the James Flamingo by the black plumage above their tail, their yellow legs and the colouring of the beak which is much paler yellow with a black tip.
Vicuñas, whales & condors
Visitors to the extreme south of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego can expect to see the doe-eyed guanaco. Closely related to llamas, these beautiful camelids live in packs and survive in some of the country’s harshest conditions.
The Valdes Peninsula in the east is renowned for marine wildlife such as sea lions, whales, dolphins, seals and penguins and a myriad of sea birds. Punta Tombo is a must for penguin lovers, about half a million Magellan penguins nest here between September and April, a sight (and smell) to behold.
The mountains in the western region of Argentina showcase still more species of wildlife from llamas and vicuñas to the spectacular, majestic condors.
