Sounds of a Tropical Rain Forest: Produced for the American Museum of Natural History

Green sounds of the tropical rain forest: black howler monkeys, toucans and chachalaca dominate the dry season while tree toads, Bufo marinus (South American toads) and parakeets accompany the rainy season. Recorded in the Peruvian Amazon region called Montaña and possibly under the showerhead of a Manhattan apartment.

EN ESPAÑOL

Grabado en la región del Amazonas peruano llamado Montaña y posiblemente bajo la ducha de un apartamento de Manhattan.
