Buenos Aires Zoo Map
   The following map gives you the idea of what you can see in the park and allows you to plan your visit ahead of time.

The plan is clear and corresponds to the reality you will find on the ground.

Actually all along the walkways you will find this map displayed with the exact location of where you are currently. I found it very useful.

On the other side I observed that in many sections there is no good description outlining what you actually see and most of those existing are in a poor state severely deteriorated and some quite hard to decipher.

There are many small animals roaming freely in the park. Certainly they create a warm and nature-friendly ambiance in the park but without any visual information and description it is difficult if not impossible to properly identify them.

And I guess this is part of what we suppose to learn in the Zoo – the limitless variety of the wildlife in all its shapes, forms and colors.

Big cats pictures.
    Felines are especially well represented in the Buenos Aires Zoo. You will find here tawny lion and white lioness – currently with three cute white cubs (January 2011).

There is a Bengal Tiger and still the rarity in the world of Zoos – white tiger. There is a Himalayan snow leopard, an African leopard and cheetah. You will also find a black jaguar – one of the most mystical and venerated cats.

 From the left: Bear looks quite funny - actually more like a Teddy Bear in this blue-blooming bush...
Rino does not need presentation so let's go to the last on on the right - The Giant Anteater.

To see more, click: Bear Pictures

The Giant Anteater (Oso Hormiguero) is the largest of all anteaters. Its natural habitat includes Central America reaching south to Northern Argentina. It is a solitary animal living mostly nocturnal life. It is quite unique between all mammals as it does not have teeth and its body temperature is at the very low end of range (32.7C or 96.8F).

It has a poor sight and hearing compensated by an excellent sense of smell (about 40-times higher sensitivity then human). It feeds on ants and termites (devours them with the sticky, long tongue at thousands per minute) but occasionally it will also eat fruits and eggs. In the search for food it can run long distances. The fact that it does not have any fixed place to sleep makes him a kind of vagabond. Despite his slow metabolism in a case of danger it can be a fearless adversary known to defend himself even against a jaguar. To make it clear – it can be dangerous to humans with his sharp claws.

 Animals.

Currently the Buenos Aires Zoo is the home to about 2500 different animals including more than 90 species of mammals, 50 species of reptiles and 175 species of birds.

It is not possible to talk about all of them on these few pages presented by the Free Buenos Aires Zoo Pictures. The goal of this tour is to stop at most interesting places and give you a general idea.

Hopefully it will raise your interest in animal world and possibly convince to search for more information.

You can do it on the pages of the Amazing World in Free Stock Pictures and Photos (Animal World) – where many animals from all over the world (including the Zoo of Buenos Aires) are presented on the free to grab pictures.

You have a warm invitation to do so by the Free Buenos Aires Zoo Piictures :-).

Inspired by these information and pictures you can also decide to visit the nearest to where you live Zoo park (if you did not do it so far) or to plan your next vacations in the nature.


The Buenos Aires Zoo is so well designed - it is the National Historical Monument, Recreational Park and traditional Zoo with many animals. Given these facts I will not blame you if you want to go back and re-start the tour (as the matter of fact I was there several times always finding something new).
