Habitat for Grazing Herbivore


When I mentioned in a previous post (Here) that the sustainability issue (how a massive lake creature feeds in low "food-content" lakes such as the Patagonian ones) could be circumvented if the animals were herbivores and grazed outside of the lake.

I also mentioned that an old lady at Bariloche stated that she had seen one grazing in a field by the lake.

So today I thought that it might be a good idea to show the kind of fields that can be found by the Patagonian lakes. Below is a photograph taken last April by Lake Villarino in the Nahuel Huapi National Park.

See the field in the foreground, the forest to the right and the Andean peaks behind.

You can see the lake on this map Here, in the upper-central part, Lake Villarino flows into Lake Falkner and from there east towards the Atlantic Ocean.
