Peru’s Wildlife jungle regions have some of the greatest recorded biodiversity and species of plants and animals on earth. However, you may be disappointed if you go expecting a daily episode of Wild Kingdom. An expedition to
the rainforest is not like a safari to the African savanna. Many mammals are extremely difficult to see in the thick
jungle vegetation, and though the best tour operators employ guides skilled in ferreting them out, there are no guar- antees. Even in the most virgin sections, after devoting several patient days to the exercise, you are unlikely to see a
huge number of mammals, especially the rare large species such as tapirs, jaguars, and giant river otters.
If you spot a single one of these prized mammals, your jungle expedition can be considered a roaring success. (Your
best shot at seeing jaguars is in rainforest during the months of May and June.) However, in both peruvian wildlife
you are very likely to see a wealth of jungle birds (including the region’s famous and fabulous macaws), several species of monkeys, black caimans, butterflies, and insects. in rainforest peru manu jungle ,

Manu Biosphere Reserve ( Trip) .
Experiences seasonal differences in rainfall due tob its distance from the equator. Its dry season occurs from May to September followed by the wet season which runs from October to April. Unlike temperate latitudes. tree flowering in wildlife occurs at many different times of the year depending upon the
species. Since individual trees of a single species are widely scattered throughout the forest (that is, species diversity is high while species density is low) many tree species flower simultaneously so that their pollinators -monkeys. birds. bats or bees-can transter pollen from one tree to another. A common sight therefore, is a sea of green
raintorest canopy punctuated by widely-scattered eruptions of identical color. The colors advertise the availability of nectar, and hence the trees sexual readiness, to their indispensable pollinators LEFT Trees (Meriania tomentosa) flowering at 8,000 feet (2.500 meters) BELOW A rainforest toad (Buro sp., veraguensis group) on the hunt.
While supreme predators in their own right, many Buro species protect themselves against predation both by secreting skin toxins and as a last resort by gulping air and inflating themselves to a difficult-to-swallow size.
Rainforest Wildlife ( Trip Peru )
The perpetual humidity of the cloud forest makes it an ideal home for epiphytes-plants that live on other plants and take their moisture and nutrients from their surroundings, not the ground. As dust, eaves and dirt accumulate on branches, lichens and mosses begin a colonization process that is soon followed by ferns, bromeliads and orchids. In
this photo, cloud forest trees lie swathed in thick carpets of epiphytic plants that may accumulate one upon the other, layer after layer. Interestingly, mosses, lichens and ferns-some of the oldest plants on earth-all depend upon notile sperm for sexual reproduction. Inextricably linked to thir watery origins, rain must fall in order for the
plants’ sperm to be able to travel over plants wet suriaces, find an egg, and reproduce. Flowering plants evolved only later, relying upon pollen as a means of liberating themselves their ancient links to the sea.
