# Are you able to find me in second(s)?

Found somewhere in Peru,
I am well behaved and follow the queue.

Flipped from the left to right,
In a name to the children's like.

Switch places with you and me,
A comfort place becomes a wild beast.

How many times have I shown my face?
All you need is a little trace!

What am I?

• It may be Andes Mountain (Machu Picchu) or Amazon rainforest, not sure? Commented May 3, 2017 at 21:52
• @CR241 nope, that will only fits with the first line. Keep trying!

Thanks to M Oehm for solving the final stanza, and Erel Segal-Halevi for solving the title.

I think you are

The letter R

## Are you able to find me in second(s)?

R is the second letter of the title (Thanks Erel Segal-Halevi)

Found somewhere in Peru,

R is the third letter of Peru

I am well behaved and follow the queue.

R is the letter after Q

Flipped from the left to right,
In a name to the children's like.

The logo of 'Toys "R" Us', a toy store, has a flipped R in its logo

Switch places with you and me,
A comfort place becomes a wild beast.

House becomes horse

When the Rs in the riddle are connected, an R apppears (thanks M Oehm)

What am I?

What R you?

• Very good, I think that's it. As to the last stanza: Maybe it's a bit of a stretch, but if you connect the seven Rs in the poem, you get this. Commented May 4, 2017 at 5:31
• @MOehm wow that is pretty clever Commented May 4, 2017 at 6:23
• "Switch places with you and me" -> you "are" me (and me is you). Doesnt this mean pretending to be someone else so the "switching places" line is a seperate clue? Commented May 4, 2017 at 8:28
• @TotumusMaximus Not sure, I'm pretty sure it means to swap "u" with me ("r") in a word (house) Commented May 4, 2017 at 8:30
• R is the second letter of the title. Commented May 4, 2017 at 12:27

I think you are

the letter E.

Are you able to find me in second(s)?

E is the second letter of the word "second".

Found somewhere in Peru,

... and the second letter of "Peru" ...

I am well behaved and follow the queue.

... and the last letter of "queue".

Flipped from the left to right,
In a name to the children's like.

Maybe ∃ (the existence symbol) is somehow associated with children?

Switch places with you and me,
A comfort place becomes a wild beast.

I'm guessing this means there's a word meaning a place of comfort which, when its U ("you") becomes an E, turns into a word meaning a wild beast.

Quite a few times in this riddle, and indeed in most pieces of English writing.

• So close, and will work if you found a way to fit in line 5&6. Actually there's another riddle about the letter E, right when I posted mine (it's gone now for some reason).
