Dry Chaco

WWF Abstract

You'll find many large mammals in the northern sections of the Chaco ecoregion, so it's not surprising that the Guarani Indian name Gran Chaco implies productive hunting grounds. This vast South American ecoregion is filled with grasslands, thorn forests, and other habitats that support a diversity of wildlife, including pampas deer, Chacoan peccaries, jaguars, pumas, and other large mammals, as well as little thornbirds, greater rheas, southern boas, horned frogs, and many other species.
