Torres del Paine is amongst the very best locations in Patagonia to find the elusive puma or mountain lion. Thanks to a sizeable population of guanacos, their main prey, these predators have found a sanctuary in this UNESCO-listed biosphere reserve in Chilean Patagonia. Pumas are singular animals with exceptional camouflage against the semi-arid landscape, making them tough to track. But hike into Torres del Paine with a professional guide, and youve got the very best possibility of coming face to face with this feline.Guanacos are carefully associated to llamas and alpacas and can be discovered all across the steppes, scrublands, and mountains of Patagonia. These herbivores are developed to endure in arid areas and, like their other cousin, the camel, can go without water for extended periods, surviving on the wetness they obtain from plants they consume. They run like the wind at about 35 miles per hour, making them the second-fastest mammals in Patagonia after the puma, their chief predator.
Look up into the skies above Torres del Paine, and youre most likely to see the magnificent Andean condor, considered the worlds biggest flying bird, with a 10-foot wingspan. They are strong and extremely creative birds, understood to be able to fly 200 miles in a single day and rise to altitudes as high as 18,000 feet.
Chilean flamingos are a common sight in Patagonia, especially around lagoons and lakes.

Chacabuco Valley, La Pampa and parts of Argentine Patagonia are swarming with large nests of these classy migratory birds.
Native to this region, the Patagonian fox or South American gray fox is a small animal weighing in between 5 and 12 pound. It is a highly versatile scavenger that is comfortable in a range of habitats, from dry Argentinian scrubland to frigid steppes. Although they are called foxes, these mammals are thought about “incorrect foxes” as the species is more carefully associated to canines and wolves than foxes.
Discovered mainly in the meadows of Patagonia, the Humboldts hog-nosed skunk is a small, stocky mammal that feeds generally on bugs and smaller mammals. Known as the Patagonian hog-nosed skunk, it has one or 2 white stripes running down the sides of its body. Skunks can predict their offending spray approximately 15 or 20 feet, so its finest to appreciate them from a safe range!
