Young caiman, which mainly feeds on invertebrates, especially coleoptera, is their main food. Adult caimen mainly feed on vertebrates, including aquatic and terrestrial vertebrates. The caiman's bite is not very good compared to other crocodiles. Their predation strategy usually consists of standing still, sneaking through the terrestrial vertebrates, or lying in the water, sneaking nearby fish and other Aquatic vertebrates sometimes use their bodies and tails to drive fish to shallow waters, or in open waters, drive fish to narrow shores for predation. The unique shape of the giant clam is also a very strange movement in the Amazon. It is the longest of the murine family. The adult male pythons are two meters long from head to tail. Their appearance is not fierce, even cute, but these huge guys are not afraid. A fierce and flexible carnivorous animal such as a jaguar, and a master of catching river fish. They are extremely high-intelligence animals, especially good at using their own wisdom, and their strategies and wit in fighting against natural enemies far exceed those of other animals.

The plane passed through the thick clouds, and the drizzle of rain drove outside the hanging window. The sun was hidden behind the clouds and disappeared. Even with the exhaustion of one body, I am sleepy at the moment, with a very complicated mood, always look at the scene outside the window. The plane turned in the direction and began to dive slowly down. The originally quiet cabin suddenly became paralyzed. I once again explored the window, under the clouds, it was an endless green, a meandering river, looming across the clouds. Faces in front of the scene, my thoughts become a bit chaotic. I never thought about it. I spent a few years in the Amazon rainforest. At this moment, I spread it in front of my own eyes in such a way. Also immersed in the first to know the excitement, the plane has slowly landed in the town of the rainforest hinterland. Stepping out of the hatch, a burst of moist air passed by, and the clouds in the distance rolled down, as if at your fingertips. Although it is still early in the morning, the town has already fallen into a hustle and bustle, and the three-wheeled motorcycles everywhere on the streets make people often have the illusion of being in Southeast Asia. The roast crocodile meat that is everywhere in the market has pulled my thoughts back to Amazon. Strolling on the streets of the town, suddenly, over the river bank, the plane whizzed past, making a huge roar and gliding towards the airport. People who work in the town have long been accustomed to this. Although knowing that this is a transportation hub to the Amazon region, the prosperity of the town is beyond imagination. I have been so skeptical that I have really come to the long-lost Amazon.

The Amazon rainforest covers an area of 7 million square kilometers and occupies eight countries including Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana and Suriname, accounting for half of the world's rainforest area. With the world's richest flora and fauna, if you want to choose the most cost-effective location for Amazon's exploration, I recommend the most popular place in Iquitos, Peru. Iquitos Iquitos is the largest city in the world that can't be reached by car. It has a population of 500,000 and is the largest city in the rainforest. Here, you can rent a boat at the dock to go to the rainforest to find animals. Don't let go of every lush branch, there may be a sloth or a scorpion hidden there, and enjoy these moments of discovery, you will not want to leave.

Here is the place where the whole South America has brought me the most surprises. The originality, the wildness, and the beauty away from the world have deeply fascinated me. When you mention the Amazon rainforest, what do you think of? Piranha? Large pythons? Wonderful animal? Primitive tribe? ... Yes, all the original and wild scenery you can imagine can be witnessed in the magical land of Amazon. However, before entering the rainforest, I wanted to explore the lifestyle of the Aboriginal people living in the Amazon, so I went to the Iquitos dock and took the local public transport boat to visit the wooden houses along the river, like the locals. The world's largest water, the most extensive Amazon River, back and forth, watching their way of life, quietly waiting for the sunset to fill the Amazon.

Have you ever thought about rafting in the lush pristine rainforest, exploring the mysterious animal kingdom, sleeping peacefully under the pure starry sky and the galaxy, what a romantic experience. There is such a magical land that occupies one-fifth of the forest area on Earth. One of the largest river basins in the world, nestled among the dense jungles, hidden in this endless green, is known as the "Lung of the Earth"; in this lush pristine tropical Among the rainforests, there are a large variety of flora and fauna, which is known as the world of animals and plants. Wake up to you every day is no longer the pressure to go to work, but the macaws are crisp and screaming, and the screaming of the monkeys in the jungle. In this jungle full of unknowns, there are countless deadly cold-blooded killers. The tiny animals that look like beautiful skin, maybe just touched gently, will immediately make people feel numb and even die on the spot. The giant squats in the river, when encountering potential food, will use the strong muscles to easily entangle humans. This is thus seen as a human exclusion zone. Boating through this magical tropical rainforest, feeling the purest romance from nature, after the experience, will have a deeper understanding of the world.

Thailand and the Maldives have very romantic net red floating houses, but in Iquitos, Peru, Colombia, and Brazil, the Belm floating area is not so romantic. It was once written by American writer Chikas. In the book Equator, I read the introduction of the relevant residential areas. In order to see their real life, I ran to the dock of the Amazon River and found a child rowing me to the floating house. There are thousands of people living in the Belem water shack area. They live in a floating house on the water. At about 7 o'clock every day, the market sells fruits and wild animal products harvested from the jungle. When I first arrived at the village, It started to rain, which happened to be the rainy season of the Amazon, so the water level rose very high, but the villagers still drove the ship between the houses. Floating house households are connected, and they are firmly tied together in order to avoid being washed away by water. The fishermen are mostly in and out of the village. The simple style of the fishing village is vivid. The majority of the residents of the floating village are Peruvians who live on fishing and live in the simple waters of Ninglang. The dream of their whole life is to make enough money to buy a fixed house on the shore.
