Peru is a privileged country that is home to a wide variety of animal and plant species with which man has managed to live in harmony for thousands of years. Peru's flora and fauna is representative of its abundant nature, and is a paradise for wildlife watchers.
Of Peru's animals, the condor, the serpent and the puma, among others, were worshipped by the ancient people, who immortalised them in pottery and with monuments as they established the first civilisations and paid homage to their beauty and power.
For many years Peru kept hidden thousands of species that are now astonishing many scientists around the world. In particular, it is the native species that are most enchanting, thanks to their unique characteristics: their beauty, their peculiarities, but above all the ways in which they have adapted to the challenging climates and regions of Peru.
