I believe this is a type of king fisher.
These are hoatzin, also known as stinkbirds. It is the only bird to use fermentation to digest its food, similar to a cow, hence the nickname. Special thanks to my brother the bird nerd for this information!
This is a cocoi heron, which are common throughout South America.
The capybara is the largest rodent in the world! They love water, and mostly only live near it.
Capybaras, unlike most rodents, are herbivores. They are very picky about what they eat as well, though during the dry season they have fewer choices.
This is a black-collared hawk, which live all over south and central America.
This is a howler monkey, though they didn't live up to the name when I saw them.
I have no idea what this bird is, but I thought it was rather prehistoric looking. Unfortunately it wouldn't stay still long enough for me to get a decent photo.
This appears to be a female howler monkey with a baby on her back.
These cute little ones are Bolivian squirrel monkeys.
Our guide enticed them right onto our boat with a banana. He didn't actually feed them, which is good, though I think teasing them is a bit mean.
Here you can see the monkeys looking for a way to get the banana. I'm sure they were very disappointed when then didn't get any.
I'm not sure if there are howler monkeys or another species...
Docked at our lodge in the park.
Home sweet home!
This is the grassland that gives the pampas it's name (pampas is a derivation of a Quechua word meaning "plain").
We came here for sunset, but it was a little disappointing due to the clouds...
We hiked around this area looking for anacondas, but never saw any.
It's hard to tell the scale in this photo, but these snail shells are quite large, the smaller one is a bit bigger than a quarter.
Jabiru, the tallest flighted bird in south and central America. I would guess these were over four feet tall.
This picture didn't come out well, but these are some sort of wasp I think.
South American great horned owl.
I saw these same spiders in the Costa Rica, but I can't seem to find out what they are.
Strange seed pod.
Despite looking at a list of all the hawks and eagles in Bolivia, I can't identify this raptor.
This is a red bellied piranha that I caught and ate.
Look at those teeth!
Sunset on the pampas.
Sunrise the next morning.
This is the runway Rurrenabaque airport. There is no refueling here, planes come from La Paz and then go straight back.
