This new area with market stall and bright colors is devoted to three species typical from South America: the alpaca (a domestic cousin of the vicuña and the guanaco), the Patagonian Mara (a rodent somewhat rabbit-like) and the Guinea pig (a small rodent well known by kids and coming from the Andes)! Just next to them, tapirs, capybaras and giant anteater (a strange 2-m long mammal with a heavy fur and impressive claws) can be observed in a wide park where they rub shoulders like in the nature.
