In One Afternoon, All Of This Amazon Rainforest Wildlife

Phil Torres

I've been working in theTambopata rainforest for almost a year now and I'm still continually impressed by the quantity of wildlife you can see over the course of several hours. Yesterday a bunch of tourists and I left Refugio Amazonas, took a 4.5 hour canoe ride upriver, and ended up in the Tambopata Research Center.

I had a 400mm camera at my side and decided to see if I could capture all of the wildlife we saw along the way. While I missed getting a good shot a few bird species we saw (like herons, egrets, storks) and a few other creatures, I still ended up with quite the collection of images.

Here are eight amazon rainforest wildlife highlights, for you to identify in the comments below. I'll post the identities once we have someone who guessed all of the names of the animals correctly, either here or on the same image posted on our facebook.

How to plan your Amazon travel to see this and other Amazon wildlife  <http://www.perunature.com/check-availability/>

  • Go on a hike or in the river in the rainforest with a trained guide: Wildlfe is everywhere in the rainforest. You can see them around lodge gardens if you just pay attention. However, to see then you need a trained eagle eye as our guides. To practice, download your Amazon Rainforest Animal identification guide and the beautiful illustrated plate of Amazon mammals.
  • And of course, when you travel to the Amazon you know who to chat with. We will help you get here.
