Mammals of Paraguay

Paraguay has a rich diversity of mammals including one of the highest species diversity of armadillos in the world. Paraguay has an number of outstanding organizations like the Fundacion Moises Bertoni and the Fundacion DeSdel Chaco engaged in conservation and environmental education. Species accounts of Paraguayan mammals were written by students enrolled in the mammalogy course at UW-Stevens Point. These accounts are fashioned after student-published accounts on Animal Diversity Web, recognized as one of the premier educational sites on organismal diversity in the world.

Species Accounts are arranged taxonomically by Order. To see an account, browse the Mammal Database to learn more about the mammals of Paraguay. Please contact the curator of mammals at the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point with questions or corrections.
