If, like me, you're a bit of a nature geek then you're sure to want to seek out some of the more unusual creatures that can be found around the world.
One location that could be a good choice for animal lovers with a penchant for the weird and wonderful is Peru, where you could be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of some bizarre wildlife.
The Daily Telegraph compiled a list of some of the most unusual creatures all over the globe and two of these can be found in Peru.
First up is the bald uakari monkey, which is characterised by its bright red face and bald head, while the rest of its body is covered in thick, auburn hair.
You'll find this tree dweller in the jungles of Peru so it could be a good idea to book a trip with a guide who knows what they're looking for.
Another animal that you may see if you venture to the South American nation is the mata mata - a large freshwater turtle that inhabits the Amazon.
The newspaper noted that the turtle has "several strange features", including an appearance that resembles "a pile of waterlogged bark and debris" and "an odd, protruding nose which acts as a snorkel".
As well as these creatures, you'll find that there are plenty of other animals to find on adventure holidays in the region, with the WWF stating that the Amazon is home to more than 400 different amphibians, 378 reptile species and 427 mammals, as well as more than 100,000 invertebrate species.
