Chesnut Eared Aracari, Manu National Park, Peru

About

After spending the last three nights in the beautiful Manu National Park its a shame to be back in Cusco. The national park is home to a wide variety of birds and other rare wildlife. This gorgeous toucan came along when I was staying at a lodge in a small coca plantation on the first night. The toucan did not like to be stroked and later pood on my arm numerous times. Our tour guide Herbert of Wild Watch Peru was amazing and knew pretty much everything about everything. Charlie the chef was great too and we never went hungry. The last 24hrs of the tour were amazing as we swam in the rivers, camped around a huge campfire, had some nice food and a beer and went to an animal sanctuary next day. The animals there had all been rescued from babies so were not shy to interact with visitors. Never before had a spider monkey, 2 pigs, parrots and a baby jaguar ran up and hugged me all at same time. Everyone was speachless.
