Laguna Blanca information
Parque Nacional Río Pilcomayo's outstanding feature is shallow, shimmering Laguna Blanca (not to be confused with the town) where, at sunset, caymans lurk on the lake's surface. Other animals are likelier to be heard than seen; species such as tapirs, anteaters, and the maned wolf are present. Birds are abundant, with rheas, parrots, cormorants, jabirú, and raptors easily spotted. The park has grasslands studded with caranday palms, and thicker, riverine vegetation.
