In the Amazon Rainforest, there are roughly 60 species of Manakin. This colorful cutie measures about 3.7 inches long and weighs less than half an ounce. Adult males are typically black-bodied and have red and white thighs. If you’re lucky enough to see their mating ritual, then you’ll catch them doing a jumping, sliding, buzzing, mating dance. Scientists are calling it the Amazon’s first hybrid species. Interestingly enough, this species was first discovered in 1957 but disappeared until 2002, when it was first spotted again. It’s a mix between the snow-capped and opal-crowned manakins (Sci).
