The Amazon rainforest is an absolute wonder for all of the senses. Walls of vibrant green surround you, fresh dewy scents hang in the air, and an orchestra of birds sing from dawn to dusk, but when the sun fades behind the hilltops, the magic isn’t over. A large percentage of life, from birds and mammals to unique insects and reptiles make their living at night, and a whole new world opens up to those who are willing to explore after dark.
