Wildlife at Sugarloaf

Sugarloaf Mountain is one of the iconic sights in Rio de Janeiro. While the day continued to be overcast and the views from Sugarloaf were less than ideal, there was wildlife to be seen, including the Common Marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), the Argentine Black and White Tegu (Salvator merianae), the Black Vulture (Coragyps atratus), and the Magnificent Frigatebird (Fregata magnificens).
