Description: The park is home to one of the world's largest, extending over some 2,700 m, and most impressive waterfalls, which the site shares with Iguazú National Park in Argentina. The park is home to many rare and endangered species of both flora and fauna, such as the giant otter and the giant anteater; the extensive and lush flora finds the clouds of spray produced by the waterfall as conducive to its growth. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  Iguaçu National Park is a national park in Brazil. It is best known for its waterfall (flowing at over 1000 m³/s, and part of which is in Argentina) and wildlife (especially bird-life) which includes rare and endangered species. This is a unique place in the world, with five kinds of forests and biosystems all in the same location. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site. --Wikipedia.
