The Amazon's Exotic Wildlife
Attractions & Activities In The Ecuadorian Amazon
Trying to get your head around the stupendous array of animals in the Ecuadorean Amazon can be mind-boggling. Not only are there 800 species of fish swimming around its waters, 350 species of reptiles slithering around the shorelines and 300 mammals crawling around the jungle, but many of Ecuador’s 1,600 bird species can also be found fluttering about here.
During your luxury tour of the Amazon, you’ll be confronted with a bedazzling chorus of wildlife, commonly led by the red howler monkeys’ ear-splitting long-range caterwaul – enough alone to wake the dead. And while they are more often heard before they are seen, it won’t take too long for you to spot a critter or two. You might see the alligator-like caiman lazing by the water as you traverse the jungle by boat or perhaps even spy the elusive jaguar, skulking quietly through the forest.
Don’t forget to turn your gaze upward every now and then to look for the Amazon’s ensemble of feathered inhabitants. Representing the smaller jungle denizens are the brightly colored hummingbirds, while larger winged residents include the mealy amazon – among the largest parrots on the planet – and the monstrous harpy eagle, a hunter who feeds on creatures such as vultures, monkeys and sloths.
