Located just 50 km from Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, this park houses many animal species in their natural habitat. Temaiken is a fantastic park and quite exotic, with beautiful gardens. It receives as many visitors as the Zoo of Palermo in Buenos Aires. Although in general I do not like zoos, I loved this one. It is the only bio-park in South America, in Escobar, near Buenos Aires. Other zoos should have as much respect for the different species that they look after, as this place does.

In a theme park like a zoo, I am entranced by so many colors which illustrate and highlight each specimen which you will find there or each foliage that adorns or complemnts in the reproduction of their natural habitat.
This is another image of the zoo, 20km from Mar del Plata, a place where most animals have plenty of space and freedom to roam. A few animals that are receiving veterinary treatment are in cages (large) and all animals have large landscaped grounds with large pits at the ends with security. A great place to visit!
