We took many photos of the local wildlife. You’ve already seen the giant ants at Bayoz. Most of the other insects were so unusual for me that I forgot to take photos – 4cm beatles, flying grasshopper things and spiders the size of your hand we among some of the sights. I also saw a couple of fireflies – again a first for me.
The pictures here are of a place we visited, a small privately owned reserve where you can see alot of the local animal life. It was difficult to get a picture of the flocks of parrots flying above the trees and completely impossible to get a shot of the hummingbirds, so I have just included some of my favourite photos, including the pet monkey that lived in the cafe nearby.
The video below is of a plant, that when touched, retracts its leaves to protect them.
