Atlantic Forest

Embark on a journey through Atlantic Forest!

Atlantic Forest

Atlantic Forest is our new three-part reserve, celebrating the Amazon’s lesser known cousin and three of the South American species that live there.

Bush Dogs

These wonderful carnivorous mammals are endemic to South America and in the wild hunt in family packs. They live in lowland forest and river habitats and have evolved partially webbed feet to help them swim better.

Lowland Tapir

Say hello to the fascinating Lowland Tapir. You will quickly notice their unique nose and upper lip which combine into a flexible snout to help pick up fruits and grab leaves in lowland forest. Their neck is protected by a thick spikey mane and they are closely related to Rhinos and Horses!

Maned Wolf

With a thick red coat and distinctively long legs to help them spot prey in their tall grassland habitat the Maned wolf are neither a wolf nor a fox. Maned wolves are often very solitary animals’ endemic to Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina. They primarily eat a diet made up of small mammals, fruits and vegetables.
