animales patagonia mara At present the existing biodiversity in the Patagonia Argentina, we are referring not only to the particular characteristics of each of the species that inhabit this region, wildlife humble glance, but try to give a global picture of the immense wealth totalizing underlying this ground, across the spectrum.
