South America's Weirdest

South America: the world’s fourth largest continent. It’s the birthplace of the mighty Amazon, the spectacular Andes, the great Cerrado and the ferocious Pantanal. But there are lesser known vistas too: the Atacama Desert, the Mata Atlantica, the Caatinga and the Llanos. Here, life is as diverse as the land that supports it.  Life here is also a challenge.  To revel in South America’s splendor, inhabitants must first fight through its fury. To survive is to adapt. In this quest to change, adapt and survive, the South American wilderness has turned its back on conventions. In their myriad spectacular forms, they are South America’s Weirdest Animals.
