Rivers, savannahs and wetlands form a huge natural tourism potential , given the existence of areas still preserved and with loads of animals from the most varied . Among mammals still find the jaguar ( Panthera onca ) , the puma ( Felix concolor ) and otters (Pteronura brasiliensis) , thus showing the high degree of preservation.
