In the Iguazu Falls National Park live different species of native fauna, among them the Yaguareté (Panthera onca) that is one of the five species of felids of the American continent. It is the third largest in the world, after the tiger (Panthera tigris) and the lion (Panthera leo). The yaguareté, whose name in Guaraní means “the true beast”, is an endangered species and one of the Natural Monuments of Argentina, protected by its great value for the ecosystem.
