Ischigualasto/Talampaya Natural Parks – The Natural Wonder in Argentina

It is not a secret anymore that millions years ago, the surface of the earth is conquered by the biggest reptile which is called dinosaur. This is really interesting fact for modern people today because there is nothing left from the giant dinosaur although there are some reptiles with quite large size but it is nothing compared to the dinosaur which is seen from its fossil. Jurassic Park becomes the movie which can bring people’s imagination about this period but people can see the site directly at Ischigualasto/Talampaya Natural Parks in Argentina.
