Passing bridges of logs

Once we arrived at "The Jungle" and accommodate us in the camp, we went to make walking through the region, which means entering to “The Jungle”, passing bridges of logs, walking through the mud and trying to see all the biodiversity that exists in plants, animals and insects.
You can see monkeys, but no longer as close as in "The Pampas", also a number of different birds and depending on the fate some other animal, as some alligator that is approaching at the camp in the night.
It is interesting how cautious approach in a herd of wild pigs which are beginning to notice our arrival the stampede with a sound mix of sound from the jungle with branches and trunks parties.
You can really appreciate giant trees with a length of several hundred years, can be seen "walking trees" that are moving very slowly through their roots, and an endless variety of different plants, plants strangle that strangulation to other trees and even jokingly the called “tree of the penis” by its roots in this mode.

There are a variety of insects, spiders nests, therefore spiders, and ants nests, large variety of ants, and so on.

Passing bridges of logs
Missing eyes to see and mind to learn all the existing biodiversity.

 

 

In spanish:

 

Una vez que arribamos a “La Jungla” y nos acomodamos en el campamento, fuimos a efectuar las caminatas por la región, lo que significa entrar a “La Jungla”, pasar puentes de troncos, caminar por el barro y tratar de ver toda la biodiversidad que existe tanto en plantas como en animales e insectos.

Spiders nests

Se pueden observar monos, pero ya no tan cerca como en “Las Pampas”, también una serie de distintas aves y dependiendo de la suerte algún otro animal, como algún caimán que se acerca en la noche al campamento.

Es interesante acercarse en forma cautelosa a una manada de chanchos salvajes los cuales al notar nuestra llegada empiezan la estampida con un sonido mezcla del sonido de la jungla con ramas y troncos partidos.

Se puede apreciar árboles realmente gigantes con una antigüedad de algunos cientos de años, se pueden apreciar “árboles que caminan” por que se mueven muy lentamente mediante sus raíces, y una variedad interminable de distintas plantas, plantas estranguladoras ya que estrangulan a otros árboles e incluso el llamado en broma árbol del pene por sus raíces de esta forma.

Hay una variedad de insectos, nidos de arañas, por consiguiente arañas, grandes hormigueros y variedad de hormigas, etc., o sea que faltan ojos para ver y mente para aprender toda la biodiversidad  existente.
