 GENERAL INFO (Jump to Diary)
The Republic of Paraguay is an unitary presidential constitutional republic, covering 406.752 square kilometres in-between Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina. It is the home of 6.783.272 citizens, of which 97% are Christians.
The currency is Guaraní, worth 0,0012 Danish Krone and €0,00016. The GDP is US$28.743 billion.

The overall climate is tropical to subtropical, depending on the altitude. I will mainly be exploring the humid subtropical areas along with the small warm semi-arid area. That despite most plants and animals presumably are found in the large tropical savannah area.
Paraguay have so many interesting mammals like several species of armadillos, anteaters, sloth, primates, porcupines, viscachas and chinchillas, guinea pigs, agoutis and pacas, tuco-tucos, rats, squirrels, mouse, bats, cats, dogs, tapirs, pigs, deer and opossums.
The flora is even richer, but I'm just here to study entire biomers, not the specific species. Well, it would be great to see some of the caudiciforms:
