Seals, penguins, stalks, gulls, guanay guano birds, crabs and other animals from around the Ballestas Islands (aka "The Poor Man's Gallapos). Unfortunately no whales or dolphins the day I went but did catch a video of two seals snapping at each other for territory. The conditions provide a unique setting for this wildlife to survive, and the bird droppings a valuable nutrient rich resource for export and use in fertilizer.
The final few pics are of ancient plant etching into a mound (of a similar ilk to the Nazca lines) of a scared San Pedro hallucaneginic plant, and skulls with enlarged craniums from the local musuem.
