Description

A very early start by canoe through the rivers of the Santa Elena conservation area near Rioja, in San Martin, Peru. The area of the reserve covers several thousand hectares and is accessible only by canoe via rio romero, rio negro and rio mayo. The area is covered in dense jungle with lots of vines, bromeliads, orchids. This morning we saw squirrel monkeys, tamarins, and one other species that I dont have an id for yet - we also heard howler monkeys. All the monkeys were quite timid but the squirrel monkeys were by far the least so - although it was still difficult to get a clear shot in the low light.

I've seen a number of toucans distantly in the trees around here in the high jungle of San Martin, Peru, over the last few weeks - their outlines clearly visible high in the tree tops, silhouetted against the sky, but before I can get in range for a shot, they're gone. This evening I got close enough in the fading for these 2 shots which aren't great photos but hopefully enough to identify it.

The first thing I knew about this guy was that he was slapping into the window of the house on the outside. I was sitting inside. I grabbed the camera and ran out. He was crawling on the wall and quickly flew back onto the window and crept into this nook in the window frame. He slept for the day there. When I looked last night he was gone. The house is a farm house about 2km out of town surrounded by some cultivated land, lots of fruit trees, some cattle. It's the rainy season and nearby is some virgin forest. Altitude is about 900m. The guardian of the house told me today that the bats around here eat fruit and suck animal blood - I have no idea about this one.

I saw this on a jungle path through a quebrada about 1km behind the Wakanki Orquidiario near Moyobamba, Peru. It was the very start of the wet summer season. The area was quite shady, lots of green foliage, and damp. The insect was approx 4-5 inches long not including the incredibly long feelers on its head. It was very smooth to look at and a beautiful red and black.

This guy appeared in the middle of the living room floor about an hour after dark and stood there without moving for a few minutes. The place where we live is rural, about 2 kms outside a provincial town and surrounded behind by high jungle (selva alta). I got a few photos with the coin to measure its size - the coin is slightly under an inch in diameter. Then with the help of a broom, we gently guided him towards the door to which he ran happily and quickly.

Description

Amphisbaena alba is one of the most common herps at Alto Mayo valley (870- 900 m NN), related to Atta ant nests. We have weekly sightings and try to train our workers not to kill those animals. In my opinion, A. alba might feed also on giant earth worms and is possibly a prey of a large local Micrurus species. Until now, I saw only adults during the past 30 years- never juveniles. This species is also present in the Tropical Dry Forest belt of the Huallaga Central (Juan Guerra, 12 km south of Tarapoto).
