From the world-famous Machu Picchu Incan ruins high in the Andes Mountains, to Lake Titicaca in southern Peru, to the Iquitos area of Amazonian northeastern Peru, ecotravellers want to experience tropical forests and other stunning habitats and catch glimpses of exotic wildlife: toucans and parrots, monkeys and anteaters, frogs and toads, crocodiles and snakes. In this book is all the information you need to find, identify, and learn about Peru's magnificent animal and plant life. The authors, professional biologists, selected for color illustrations more than 500 of Peru's most common insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals - the species you are most likely to see. In one easy-to-carry, entertainingly written, beautifully illustrated book, you will have as constant companion on your journey: • Identifying and location information on the most frequently seen animals; • Up-to-date information on the ecology, behavior, and conservation of the animals; • Information on Peru's habitats and on the most common plants you will encounter; • Brief descriptions of Peru's most frequently visited parks and reserves.
