708. Peru Trip | Night Exploration + Fishing for Piranhas

Piranha teeth
One afternoon we went fishing for piranhas and other Amazonian fish. It was my first time ever fishing and it was quite fun. By complete luck, I managed to catch the largest fish! It was also the only one I managed to catch though lol. It was a Red Belly Piranha:

We ate them for dinner. They have a ton of bones and barely any meat.

Amazon outfit leftbanked
One of my Amazon outfits. We had to always wear long sleeves and pants (due to the millions of mosquitos and other insects that bite) that were also light and airy (due to the extreme heat). Also the rubber boots are for walking in the forests since there's a lot of mud.

I forgot what these birds were called. They were yellow and black and have long legs.

I love the sunsets here.

On some nights we went out for a walk in the jungle in search of nocturnal animals. Here's one of the birds we saw. It looks a bit fake here lol. My favourite nocturnal animal we saw was the capybara (the largest rodent in the world). They look really funny. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a photo of it. We saw it while on the boat and for a very brief moment.

  1. A fishing article--something a little different for you all! Very interesting. I would have been worried about falling out of the boat, lol.
