Within the collection of animals in Central America and Caribbean, the giant anteater is one of the extraordinary species that may be seen at Madrid Zoo. Not only is it one of the oldest mammals on the planet. This creature, a cousin of armadillos and sloths, is a genuine rarity in the terrestrial environment. The green turtles (Chelonia mydas), for their part, are common reptiles of the Caribbean seas and oceans that may be seen at the Zoo (though in reality they inhabit tropical and subtropical oceans around the world).
