NATURE/WILDLIFE

Amazon

Amazon massive numbers

Rainforests are the most copious biome on diversity of species on Earth, and the Amazon figures as the principal member on this prominent subject. One in ten known existing species are in the Amazon, which represents the largest store of living plants and animals in the world.

Numbers of Amazon talks per itself. To date, more than 430,000 plants have been recorded, as well 427 mammals, 1,294 birds, 3,000 fish, 428 amphibians, 378 reptiles and about 2.5 million insect species. And scientific researches will probably discover much more as extensive areas and territories in the Amazon have never been studied.

Brazil Amazon Awesome biodiversity

On the sphere of such an extraordinary biodiversity, it’s difficult to point up Amazon’s hot spots. From unusual curious creatures to powerful predators, the Amazon reveals a world of admiration and surprises. Dense tall forests present constant and active life on different levels. Rivers, lakes and water courses hide some unimaginable wildlife for most human beings. Nature in the Amazon is a vivid reality surrounded by a mysterious atmosphere, witch you can feel only by an Amazon travel.

The wildlife list goes far. Jaguars, black caimans, anacondas and the pink and gray dolphins are famed predators. Monkeys’ species are largely spread and are plenty, like the capuchin monkeys, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, tamarins, squirrel monkeys and marmosets. Endangered manatees, turtles (tracajás) and “pirarucus” (the largest freshwater fish on Earth) figures on this special list. Tapirs, sloths, agoutis, raccoons, river sting rays, tarantulas, bats and a wide variety of amphibians like the red-eyed tree frog are just some other examples of Amazon wildlife. 

The lists of Amazon birds and flora are even more extensive. Macaws, parrots, toucans, owls, hawks, ibis and herons are some of the larger birds travelers may find on their trips. The plants’ universe of Amazon is so immense we don’t know even from where we would start listing. Gigantic trees, exquisite orchids and bromeliads, beautiful water plants like the Amazon Water Lily are also fascinating attractions from the Amazon tours.
