Amazon World Zoo Park is an attraction with a difference. Learn about rainforests, conservation and see face to face some of the most beautiful, strange and endangered creatures in the world. Our nearest relatives are Monkeys and Apes. To distinguish between the two is that monkeys have tails although there are some exceptions. A few South American (New World) Monkeys like Amazon World Zoo Park’s resident ‘Howler Monkeys’ use for climbing and balancing their prehensile tails for a fifth limb. Would you believe approximately half of all species of mammals are rodents! Even though rodents are a very successful group of animals they often find themselves in the predicament of possibly being killed and eaten by many other animals for food. Effectively the largest rodent the Capybara is at home whether in or out of the water. To swim they use their webbed feet and at the slightest hint of danger flee into even the fastest flowing river! Another species of rodent Porcupines find protection in special hairs which grow into spikes that form a defensive coat keeping even the most determined predator away! At Amazon World Zoo Park you will find a very unusual and rare species of Porcupine the Prehensile-tailed ‘Tree Porcupine’. They have a coat of barbed spines plus an incredibly strong flexible tail which they use to hold on to branches as they climb searching for food.
