The Southern Toco Toucan (Ramphastos toco albogularis) is the largest of the toucans. It seems to feed mainly on fruit, but also insects, reptiles etc.


The threatened Azara's Capuchin (Sapajus cay) seems to be doing well in certains areas.


The shy Azara's Agouti (Dasyprocta azarae) running with a fruit. We found this species to be quite rare.

The nocturnal Southern Tamandua (Tamandua tetradactyla) seems to feed mainly on termites. This species is nocturnal.

The Southern Buff-necked Ibis (Theristicus caudatus hyperorius) has a total lenght of around 75 cm. This species seems to feed mainly on insects here.

The largest parrot in the world. The Hyacinth Macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) can reach 1 meter and feed mainly on nuts from acuri and bocaiuva palms.

The omnivorious Six-banded Armadillo (Euphractus sexcinctus) seems to do well around human settlements. This one is feeding on scraps from our lodge restaurant.

White Woodpecker Melanerpes candidus

The White Woodpecker (Melanerpes candidus) is considered an important disperser of seeds. A large part of their diet seem to be seeds, berries and fruits.
