p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Peruvian Amazon: Manu part V


An ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) hunts at night:



Just one of the small mammals or rodents which can fall prey to cats. Common Tapetí (Sylvilagus brasiliensis):



A howler monkey (Alouatta sp.) baby peering cautiously from behind the protection of its mother:



Tschudi's false coral snake (Oxyrhopus melanogenys):



The pale tail waves back and forth in a behaviour known as caudal luring. It is meant to emulate a worm, or insect and thereby attract potential prey, like anolis lizards or frogs. Two-striped forest viper (Bothrops bilineata):





Fer-de-lance (Bothrops atrox):



In the frenzy of a mating pond, there can arrive some confusion with pairings. Here a female fringe-lipped tree frog (Sinax garbei) was mistakenly grabbed by a male Dendropsophus sp., [though they don't seem particularly concerned about the mix up]:



Grasshopper with entomopathogenic fungus - (Ophiocordyceps locustiphila):



One of the more venomous spiders from South America, the wandering spider (Phoneutria ferox) has an impressive threat display:



Just an ant - Camponotus serveicentris:



Thanks for looking and commenting,
Paul
