Mammal Colpa

mammal-colpa

    A solid hour’s walk from the station, the Mammal Colpa is the most active place in the entire jungle. The clay here provides special nutrients for any animal that is willing to venture down for a drink of the muddy water. Our trail cameras have caught video of almost every living thing in the forest here, from peccary to tapir, giant anteaters to howler monkeys, and of course pumas, ocelots and jaguars, they all come to the colpa.
