A beautiful Mallard duck enjoying his water time.
At least a meter in length (including the tail), this iguana sauntered around the hotel grounds like he owned the place, in Montezuma, Costa Rica.
This sloth has made himself at home in the rafters of one of the houses in Puerto Miguel (Peruvian Amazon). He looks harmless but I wouldn’t want to tangle with those claws. For a closer look at his claws, see Amazon Household Pets
In an abandoned camp house on the Peruvian Amazon, an ocelot (aka dwarf leopard) had made itself at home. Beautiful markings, but I wouldn’t want to get close enough to pet it.
The Peruvian Amazon is home to an abundance of wildlife, and over a 5 day period in October 2015 I got to witness some of this wildlife from a small boat on the river. Today’s image is a male howler monkey, who kept his eye on us from the shore.
