Jan 29, 2018 - Delfin II
Today, we started with high spirits our expedition in the magnificent Upper Amazon in Peru. Early in the morning at sunset we went for a skiff ride in a small stream called Parauachiro Caño. In this location, we observed many bird and monkey species. Right after breakfast we went for a hike in an area known as Casual. Equipped with rubber boots and with the company of our naturalists plus a couple of local native scouts from a nearby community we explored a “terra firme” rainforest trail. This outing was an introduction to fascinating dynamics of the Neotropical rainforests and its inhabitants. The explanations of our naturalists and the eagles´ eyes of the local scouts made a great combination. We observed several frog species and a juvenile three-toed sloth. We saw a Goliath tarantula and several insect species as well. The icing of the cake of this morning´s outing was the spotting of a beautiful snake species, a red-tailed boa.
In the afternoon, after lunch, we explored the Yanayacu River which is a black water tributary of the Marañon River. In this area, several bird species and some three-toed sloths were spotted. The early and late hours of the day are the best ones for spotting the inhabitants of the rainforest.
