Amazonia

Amazonia is the habitat dedicated to the Amazon, the most legendary and charismatic of the tropical rainforests, which is home to half of the animal and plant species on the Planet, many of them still uncatalogued. Amazonia includes a wide variety of flora and fauna species from the mighty Amazon River.

Amazonia has two different areas:

  • The aquariums, which recreate the Amazon River's waters and surrounding areas and where you can see species as diverse as the Angel Fish, the Red Piranha or the Phantasmal poison dart frog. This first area is also home to the tarantula, which will surprise you with its size and shape.
  • The aquariums are where, as well as different types of fish, you can observe different species of reptiles and amphibians that live in the river, such as the Útila Spiney-tailed Iguana, a reptile belonging to the Iguanidae family of lizards, the Emerald Boa or the Helmeted Iguana.

Amazonia also boasts lush vegetation made up of 40 different species that are characteristic of the great rainforest, such as Cymbidium, Oncidium, Phalaenopsis, Vanda and Vuylstekeara orchids, bromeliads like Guzmania, Neoregleia, Tilllandsia and Vriesea and other colourful species like the Amazonian Alocasia, Asplenium nidus, Dracaena massangeana or Platycerium superbum.

Special mention must be made of the Amazonia Ant Hill, the habitat of an immense colony of leaf-cutter ants, which work day and night transporting food to grow the fungus in which the queen ant lives. This anthill complex faithfully recreates the temperature and humidity conditions of tropical rainforests, offering visitors the chance to observe this laborious process taking place both above and below ground.
