Wildlife of Chile and Argentina

Yes the bird lists are not enough – it’s time for the wildlife list! It’s been a long time coming and that’s because we haven’t seen any wildlife – BOO!

OK, well we have seen a few things, but this is going to be a very weedy list – which we hope to rectify soon when we go to Esteros del Iberá, which is know for it’s wildlife.

1) South American Sea Lion
2) Grey fox
3) Red bellied squirrel (this is an invasive species, but it was cute 🙂 )
4) Hilaire’s side-necked turtle

The grey fox was the best and most exciting, but he was too quick to get a photo, so here’s a picture of turtles instead – they are quite slow and easy to take pictures of…
