B) Days 2-4, July 13th-15th: Wolf Camps & Tool-Using Monkeys
For three days we spend all available time observing the extraordinary and rare animals in the region. We begin the day early with the endangered maned wolf, the move on to watch the bearded capuchins use tools to crack open palm nuts. Later, we spend time in the hyacinth macaw blind, to observe these magnificent birds. During our full three days with these highlighted species, we will also encounter other animals such as armadillos, tamanduas, other macaw species and endemic birds and plants of the region. This pre-extension is designed mainly around the tool-using monkeys which have learned to use rocks to crack open nuts. Prior to their discovery the only primates known to use tools were African Apes however, now these New World monkeys are considered even more sophisticated.
