The Chacoan peccary is the largest in the peccary species. There are thought to be either three or four living peccary species.

Do not confuse peccaries with pigs as they are not the same. Peccaries originate in the Americas while pigs are from Africa, Europe and Asia.

Have you every heard of a bilby? These Australian marsupials dwell in the desert. They are unfortunately endangered due to habitat loss. Bilbies’ characteristic long ears help them cool down. According to the Australian Government Department of Environment, bilbies dig extensive tunnels with their strong forelimbs, and a single bilby can have up to twelve burrows within its home.
