3. Buenos Aires: Bioparque Temaiken with Transfers
The Temaikén Foundation works to protect nature and combines a botanical garden, zoo, aquarium, and museum of natural history and anthropology.
The Biopark allows visitors to enjoy different landscapes characteristic of Argentina. The native zone provides information about the flora and fauna of the region, composed of two areas. The Mesopotamian area exhibits fauna, including black yacarés and overos, tapirs, capybaras, and lagoon turtles. The Patagonian fauna area recreates environments from the Andes mountain range to the Atlantic coast through seven enclosures: Patagonian steppe, condor, pumas, Patagonian plains, Patagonian lagoon, pudúes, and underground Patagonia.
Explore the African zone next, home to flamingos, pelicans, antelope, meerkats, and colobus, as well as three islands of lemurs, hippos, cheetahs, and zebras. In the Asian zone, there are tigers, frugivorous bats, two species of flying foxes, squirrels of Prevost, and many others. The zoo also houses wallabies and kangaroos. The aquarium allows visitors to appreciate life underwater, where it is possible to learn from a tide pool, as well as from a recreation of a river in Mesopotamia. Look through eight large panels to see sharks swimming just a few inches away in a tank filled with millions of gallons of seawater.
