We only saw a few from the viewing deck. But you could tell they are huge. We also saw monkeys, turtles and birds.

You walk to this park on some tiny bridges with Brazilian flora & fauna all around! It is greenery all around with some unusual plants to be seen!

Ok to visit but not a must see. They will,push this but it is a tourist trap more than an actual ecological park.
