Mountain Viscacha, Salar de Surire, northern Chile

Vidal, Far South ExpeditionsThe Vizcacha, Lagidium viscacia, one of the biggest rodents in South America, is one of the great sightings in the northern Altiplano and Chilean Andes, where it lives in groups in rocky outcrops.

They use several whistled calls to keep in contact and to give alarm warnings in the presence of predators like foxes and birds of prey, and in some places like Surire salt flat they can be surprisingly tame, offering great opportunities for photography.
This photograph was taken at Salar de Surire, Parinacota, Chile.
