Chile is a land of extremes, from the ice-covered fjords in the south to the Atacama in the north to the Andes in the east. This extreme geography produces an extreme range of wildlife, as well. The incredible variety of wildlife found throughout Chile is one of the things that draws in many travelers. The Torres del Paine National Park is home to a massive variety of wildlife, including pumas, guanacos, foxes, and condors. Patagonia is an excellent place for visitors to see the Magellanic and King Penguin colonies. On Chiloé Island, there is a place where visitors can see such wildlife as the Chiloé fox, pudú deer, black-necked swans, dolphins, and from December to March, whales.
