bats similar to nighthawks but in a family of their own (Nyctibiidae) potoos (Nyaibius spp) hide during the day by

mimicking adead branch their grey splotched plumage and stiff, upright stance enhance the deception Nighjars are

Amazon Viewed from the air.  

Peru’s Amazon looks like an endless sea of lumpy green sponges, stretching in all directions to the horizon. It is this thick umbrella of trees – the jungle’s equivalent of an enormous housing project – that creates the millions  of homes

below in wich animals and specialized plants live. If you were able to enter the the upper canopy slowly

from the top you would soon discover that the frist layer is virtually a desert. The crowns of the trees are exposed both to the fierce tropical sun and to winds that frequently snap and topple the tallest of them. To reduce

evaporation, the leaves at this level are quite small. Many of the epiphytes – plants that live on top of other plants –

Amazon The following list of mammal : 

Species is modified only slightly from that of the previous edition. Previous authors B. Patterson, JPatton and L.

Emmons are far and away the authorities on the distribution of South American mammal species. I have added only four species, three of which are marsupials and one spiny rat. These species were registered by our group of

mamma legists in Manu National Park during work on the Amazon Biodiversity Project directed by Dr. John Terborch of Duke University, from 1993 to 1995. Common names in Spanish for the mammals vary from one locality

to another. The common names which I have included are those which are used by the people living in the vicinity of the Manu Biosphere Reserve.



A specimen of Mono Delphi’s was captured in Manu Park by the Amazon Biodiversity Project in 1995; it is not easily classed with any described species, and therefore is listed as genus only. Description of the specimen is in progress. The fourth Proechimys is a distinct species which is currently being described.
