About The Book

Travellers to Ecuador want to experience tropical forests and other stunning habitats, and catch glimpses of exotic wildlife: toucans and parrots, monkeys and anteaters, frogs and toads, crocodiles and snakes. On the Galapagos Islands, curious visitors want to see with their own eyes the exotic, unique, tame wildlife that stimulated Charles Darwin to formulate the theory of evolution. In this easy-to-carry, entertainingly written, and beautifully illustrated book is all the information you need to find, identify, and learn about Ecuador's magnificent animal life.

About The Author
