I love these creatures. Since seeing them in Florida I had to see the Brazilian ones! and they were great!
There are not a lot of animals in the places some river otter, some manatees, fishes and tortoises and some alligators. But this place gives you a feel of how amazon jungle would be like. Be in here and you wont know you are amidst a bustling city. Entrance : 5 R$.
A great place to stroll with the kids. A small path, but it shows the animals found in the Amazon region. Some land animals are free in the woods, like monkeys, capybaras and sloth bear.

I've been travelling for 14 months and I can safely say this is one of the most inhumane things I've ever seen. All of the animals were in tiny cages and did not look healthy at all. I was really looking forward to seeing the giant otter, the water area they had for it was enough for it to jump... More
Despite trying to get into an actual research centre of some description, we eventually found where the park is and had a fun time looking around it. Though the selection of animals is small, it was a nice place to spend a little time and some animals (like the Giant Otter) I had never seen before, so that was a... More
