Hello! We're the owls and we have various responsibilities within La Aldea. We're in charge of educating the young ones, one of the most important tasks in the community, and we also undertake scientific research.
Good morning! We don't have much time because we´re working. We're the ants and we follow orders to the letter! Yes, sir! We´re very organized and efficient. On the march! And a one, two, three...
Lucy the turtle
My name is Lucy and I'm the turtle leader of La Aldea. My work requires me to make the most important decisions and consider everyone's well-being. I want us to act together and work as a community.
Ernest the tapir
My name is Ernest, I'm a handsome and powerful tapir. My father was one of the great founders of La Aldea. It's thanks to him and our lineage of tapirs that this place is still standing. I'm very proud of this and of everything I do to make La Aldea as great as it was before!
Arnold the opossum
Howdy! I'm Arnold, a quick and smart opossum. I try to always be the first at everything. Even if sometimes... just sometimes... it means breaking the rules. But, shush! Don't tell anyone!
Good day! We're the bees, the meteorologists of La Aldea. Our main interest is the protection of the environment and the production of our delicious honey. They say honey from La Aldea is the bee's knees!
Lia the crab
AHEM! My name is Lia and I'm a crab. I don't much like being with other animals I prefer to go it alone and do things as I want. Truth is, I don't even know what I'm doing here, talking to you ... Bye!
Harry the chameleon
I'm Harry the chameleon. I arrived in La Aldea not too long ago after losing my home in a landslide. My normal color is green, but when I feel happy I turn yellow and when I'm scared, I turn purple.
We're the moorhens. We're always together and prefer to stick our heads in the sand rather than put ourselves in any danger. Are we done here? It's all getting too much for us! B-Bye!
Carol the spectacled bear
Hi, I'm Carol, the only spectacled bear in La Aldea. I'm also the largest animal here. For me, the most important thing is to be respectful of the opinions and thoughts of others and never do anything to hurt them.
Peter the porcupine
Hello! I'm Peter, an honorable and responsible porcupine. I want La Aldea to become a place of fairness and openness. That's why I get angry when I see animals cheating or harming others. That's just not right!
Squawk! We're the macaws, the reporters of La Aldea. We like to stick our beaks in whatever's going on to keep the villagers well-informed. And if there's no news, well, we'll keeping looking until we find some!
Hello! We finally meet! Us mice are in charge of cleaning La Aldea and, even though we've done it for a long time, nobody ever seems to notice! Some animals think we're dirty, but we're actually the cleanest and most orderly inhabitants in La Aldea. If they took the chance to meet us, the other animals would be surprised.

In search of Silence
The quarantine goes on and Peter the porcupine is on his own. He tries to fill up his time with things to do, but as the days go by, he's running out of ideas. So he decides to just do nothing. This isn't easy to do: thousands of thoughts come and go inside his head and won't leave him be. Will he be able to find silence?
Until a few months ago, nuts were Arnold the opossum's favorite food, he could eat them every day and never get tired. Or so he believed. One day, the unexpected happened. The thought of eating just one more nut gave him the shivers. So he decided to reinvent himself. Everything was changing and perhaps it was also the perfect moment to find new versions of himself.
The world turned upside down
Since Lucy declared the quarantine, the world of the brown opossum family had turned upside down. Suddenly, the little opossums didn't have to go to school and had to stay in the family tree 24 hours a day instead. And since Mom and Pop opossum were working, they couldn't make noise or jump or run about. To fight boredom, the little opossums began to imagine other worlds where anything is possible.
