Pañacocha is classified as a Tropical Humid Forest. Its natural wildlife is abundant in each of its corners. A short list of possibilities to observe includes: 5 species of monkeys (howler, capuchin, lion, barizo, spider), marmots, otters, caiman, of course the freshwater pink Amazonian dolphin and many more.
