About the Maras

Maras are a species of rodent with brown fur and long legs. They are also called Patagonian cavies as they are closely related to guinea pigs (but not to rabbits or deer).

Habitat and Distribution

Maras are found in the grasslands of central and southern Argentina.

Family Information

They are usually found in pairs but form larger seasonal groups. Maras have up to three young at a time, up to three times per year. They are often raised in a communal den used by other mara pairs.
