Kid's Nature Magazines - Issue 37 - Peru, The Headwaters of the Amazon

Peru, the Headwaters of the Amazon

Have you heard about a legendary boiling river deep in the Amazon? If small mammals fall in, their muscles cook on their bones! Boil-ieve it or not, it really does exist!

Meet the Amazon's oddest bird... Some people call it a 'flying cow' or a 'dinosaur bird', but it's really a hoatzin! Trek to what is possibly the most famous (and mysterious) ruin in the world – the ancient city of Machu Picchu. It's positively packed with wildlife! No wonder it was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. 

Enjoy a Peruvian folktale and make an adorable anteater in celebration of World Anteater Day on 29th November.
