The Chacoan mara belongs to the cavy family. The rodent lives in small groups in the South-East of South America. In their appearance, they remind of hares and they also move like hares, but contrary to them the Chacoan maras are also able to amble.
The following photo shows a small group of Chacoan maras having their after-lunch rest in the “Tierpark Berlin”.
This is the a part of a series about the “Tierpark Berlin” (animal park in berlin). Each episode will present a animal, which you can observe there.
