The trinity of typical south american specimen can be found right under the tropical building Yucatan. The robust inhabitant of the Amazon South American tapir or the largest living rodents in the world, capybaras, can be both easily observed from the overlooking stylish wooden platform. The whole exposition is enriched by an aviary which is home to the Northern screamer. Giant anteaters and a couple of Prehensile-tailed porcupines can be seen in their glass homes but newly also in an outside area designated just for them.
