Pumas, jaguars and one or two species of wild cat are numerous, as also the Argentine wolf and two or three species of fox.
There are over 400 animals including alligators, jaguars, eagles, river otters and kangaroos.
Capybaras can be easily tamed; numbers are killed on land by jaguars and in the water by caimans - the alligators of South America.
Chinchillas and nutrias are obtained from South America, whence come also civet cats, jaguars, ocelots and pumas.
Jaguars occasionally stray into Arizona from Mexico.
