Millennial cultures such as Huitotos, Yaguas, Boras inhabit the tropical rainforest. In the middle of the jungle and over the rivers, these communities live by hunting, fishing and crops such as yucca brava and plantain, they live sustainably with mammals such as Jaguars Pumas, Zainos, Pink and Gray Dolphins, reptiles such as Alligators, Babillas and Anacondas, fish such as Amarillo and Pirarucú, and a surprising diversity of exotic birds.
