Argentina has one of the most beautiful large birds in the world. You can find them in lakes and even the ocean.
The dots in the water are really pink flamingos, it's true, I took the picture.
Some not so wild life
They don't use feedlots or steroids.
Thanks Gabby and everyone for the wonderful pictures of the wildlife of Argentina
here another relative of the Camel, also living in big part of Southamerica, just like Vicuñas and Guanacos.
Ciervo de los pantanos
called Condor, majestic, has Los Andes for habitat, the bigger bird on earth
Puma, cientific name: felis concolor patagonica, can be 3 mts from the nose to the end of the tail; can weight between 60 to 80 kg and have 4 babies each time, doesnt have natural predators
And I found this bilingual site
and not only birds, pictures of wild animals in Argentina and a map showing where and when those were taken...because an image can say a lot, is a hard job of Alec Earnshaw, with more of 1000 pictures, a real inspiration for conservationist
The wild life here is very rich, pls feel free to ask and Im going to try to help you
Ñandú Grande, or American Rhea : 1.4 mts tall males, 1.2 mts tall females, around 40 eggs by nest. between 20 and 30 kilos weight.
Ñandu Petiso o Lesser Rhea: can have 1.1 mts tall and 20 kilos weight.
Ñandú de la Puna or Puna Rhea, they live between 3500 and 4500 mts over the sea level.
here a picture of one Puna Rhea
These animals live in groups, with five female or more and one male and this one takes care of the chicks.
They eat herbs and seeds.
A big bunch
when the chicks born are yellow and black, then they change colours to grey and white.
Here you have some pictures of Ñandú, animal you can find from Brasil to Patagonia and in three differents "sizes" Enjoy
