Peru has the greatest bio-diversity in the world, thanks to the
presence of the of the Andes, Amazon and Pacific.
There are over 1,800 species of birds, hundreds of mammals
including rare cats like the jaguar and pumas, bears,
and river dolphins; the coast is rich in marine life and a great place
to see sea-lions and myriad seabirds.

  2. Judanna these pictures are fantastic! The eyes on that Llama are so beautiful. Some of the creatures are a little icky, but beautiful in their own little icky way ;) That Heliconia flower is amazing and the hummer is adorable. I wish I could plant some of those flowers in my garden. Have a great weekend! Hugs, Loretta

  6. Judanna,
    these pictures are so beautiful that I had to go back and view them twice. Thank you for sharing, my next animal on our farm I hope will be a llama! I have been putting it on my Christmas list for the past few years, but Santa hasn't brought it to me yet. You think I might have been on his naughty list. LOL
    Blessings,
    Sue
