The Central Steppes
Argentina's Central Steppes are home to the Petrified Forest and inhabited by a number of animals, including the burrowing owl, mara, and lesser rheas.
The Petrified Forest
Considered to be one of the world's best
petrified reserves, the Petrified Forest has many trees that measure more than
10 feet in diameter and 90 feet long. Compared to
petrified trees in the United States and Australia that
measure less than six feet in diameter, the trees of the
Central Steppes are significantly larger.
