As promised in yesterday’s post, here are a bunch of animals I saw while gliding along the Yacuma River in the Bolivian pampas. We also saw a couple river snakes and capuchin monkeys, but they moved too fast for me to photograph.
Bird of paradise
Sunbathing turtles–every single one moved surprisingly fast for a turtle, diving into the water when they heard our boat approaching
Capybara, the largest rodent in South America
Blue and yellow macaws–we only ever saw them in rapid flight, in groups of three to six
I can’t remember–a type of stork? Any of my birdwatching friends want to help out?
Egrets in flight
Not sure what type of bird this is
A pushme-pullyu! (Or two capybaras grazing near each other)
