Notes:

One of the most exciting sighting is the Amazon River Dolphin. Although not extremely endangered it is a privilege to see them. Usually the avoid bigger streams and live in the siderivers where is more quiet water and it can use its echolocating ability to find its prey, mostly fishes. From the anatomic point of view it is different from other dolfins. They are extremely shy.
