A symbol of the enigmatic power of the Amazon, the jaguar is the largest cat in the Americas. Jaguars have unusually large, round heads, short legs and a stunning coat dotted with dark rosettes and spots. They often live near water and are good swimmers.


It has been known historically for the hardness of its wood, both by local cultures that have used it since ancient times to build powerful spears, as well as by current mestizo cultures that use it for the construction of furniture or even for the formation of wooden beams. medium


Woodpeckers feed mainly on insects and larvae that they take out of the bark of trees with their long and extensible tongue, others eat fruit and ants; some species rarely go down to the ground and feed on some seeds that have fallen from the trees. The nests are made inside hollows of living or dead trunks.

Tree Frog

Tree frogs are a diverse family of amphibians that includes over 800 species. Not all tree frogs live in trees. Rather, the feature that unites them has to do with their feet—the last bone in their toes (called the terminal phalanx) is shaped like a claw. Tree frogs also have toe pads to help them climb and many have extra skeletal structures in their toes.
