Green acouchies (Myoprocta pratti) are native to South America and their distribution extends from the Andes to the Río Negro, south of the Amazon in Brazil and Peru and north of the Amazon in Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela. Although the range of red acouchies does not typically overlap with that of green acouchies, both species are sympatric in central Colombia and are known to hybridize in this area.
