Animals of Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu is the most protected sanctuary in Peru so your adventure wouldn’t be complete encountering the various animals that inhabit the area. One of the rather unique creatures you will see is the alpaca. It’s easy to mistake an alpaca for a llama. Alpacas are generally smaller but the key difference between the two lies in the quality of their wool. Alpaca fibres are very soft and warm making their fleece an ideal choice for clothing material. They also have the widest variety of colors in their fleece with over 22. The Incans made use of their wool to create beautifully woven and colorful clothing.

The highlands of Machu Picchu are also host to one of the most diverse populations of bird species in the world. Over 420 species nest in the area making it a premier destination for birdwatchers. Many of the birds are also endemic, meaning they can’t be found anywhere else. Researchers suspect that this is due to the unusually stable climate of the area. Some of the most commonly cited birds are the White-Tipped Swift, the Versicoloured Barbet, and the Collared Trogon
