I will soon be departing on a two-year mission trip for my church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) to Santiago, Chile. My purpose in moving there is not to visit zoos or view wildlife, but I will have a day each week that I will be able to do things such as that. The purpose of this thread is to get recommendations on things not to miss. One limitation, however, is that my mission has mission boundaries that I am not supposed to leave and unfortunately it appears that the Buin zoo is just outside my mission boundaries. I might be able to visit it with special permission, but it is not something I should count on. So without being able to visit any zoos and being confined mostly to the city, what animals native to South America should I keep an eye out for?
