I visited the waterfalls of Iguazu river in 2012, which is on the border of Brazil and Argentine. The river originates in the Serra do Mar mountains in Brazilian and it´s name means Great Water in Guaraní language. The waterfall is about 80 meter high and 2,700 meter wide.
In the surrounding subtropical rainforest are over 2,000 species of vascular plants, which have specialized tissues for conducting water, minerals, and photosynthetic products through the plant. The wildlife includes tapirs, giant anteaters, howler monkeys, ocelots, caymans and jaguars, which name has Tupí–Guaraní origin. Almost half of Argentina’s bird species is found there.
The waterfalls are shared by the Iguazu National Park in Argentina and Iguaçu National Park in Brazil. The two parks were designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
