SANDOVAL LAKE LODGE – 3 days/ 2 nights:
OUR LODGE IN PERU – SANDOVAL LAKE LODGE RESERVE
Sandoval Lake Lodge 3days: Amazon Rainforest : (Amale Red Howler Monkey) (A/ouatta senicu/us) sends an ear-splitting roar through the forest canopy as two other howlers look on. Red Howler Monkeys commonly howl in the early morning, during rainstorms, and late in the afternoon. A howling session usually begins when a male starts issuing a series of deep grunts that gradually break into a long, horrific-sounding roar. Females
often join In with higher-pitched roars of their own. The purpose of the roars, which can be heard for miles, is to alert other Red Howler Monkeys to the troop’s location, thereby reducing potential territorial conflicts. Once having finished their early-morning roars, the howlers then quietly spend the remainder of their day feeding unobtrusively on leaves – Tambopata Lodge.
