THE CLAY LICK METAL PRINT

THE CLAY LICK METAL PRINT

from 250.00

A lone Blue and Yellow Macaw is illuminated by a shaft of sunlight at a clay lick in the Peruvian Amazon. Scientists think that the clay may help the birds to flush toxic chemicals (ingested from the fruits and seeds that compose their diet) from their system and also provide much needed salt to the birds. But another hypothesis holds that clay licks may also be important as social gathering spots, simply the it place to be! Clay licks occur only in the Western Amazon where the influence of ocean air is null, meaning that salt becomes a scarce commodity.
