One of the most important samples of El Palmar National Park is the Yatay Palm. In the savannas of palm trees, woodpecker, parrots and colored hawks seek shelter, food and places and nest in trunks. In the grasslands, walking birds sneak out of foxes, wildcats and ferrets. On the banks of the El Palmar, Los Loros and Uruguay river streams you can find Brown Brocket Deers, Racoons and, in the streams, Capybaras and River Wolves.
