Mine - Black witch moth. It was as big as my hand and wandered in and out of the house the whole week.
Plenty of monkeys. We saw 3 of the 4 species, but I didn't get a photo of a howler myself. They were too far up in the canopy and often heard rather than seen. The males are, um, rather distinct.
Greater white-lined and common tent-making bats seen on trees and under fronds in the park:
Hermit and ghost crabs at the shore. And the halloween crab, a land crab, on the forest floor:
We had a nest (den?) of agoutis in the yard:
And varigated squirrels:
And, of course, birds. Some folks saw a flock of some sort of green parrot a couple times and hummingbirds. I missed both. But still added several to my life list in addition to the chestnut-mandibled toucan spotted both on the way to the villa and at the villa itself.
The yard was constantly full of kiskadees and groove-billed anis:
A blue-crowned mot-mot visited a couple days, and chasing him was how I got into the fire ants.
A Cherrie's tanager was also spotted a couple times:
A couple raptors were regulars, too:
Common black hawk
Sea birds of course, like the magnificent frigate bird:
Some folks got to see some other things, too. The zip-liners spotted a poison-dart frog, and one of the guests who were staying in another nearby villa startled one of the ubiquitous iguanas off their porch right into the coils of a happy boa constrictor.
Which means, of course, that I need to go back so I can see more wildlife. I'm torn, though. We were on the middle Pacific coast this time, and I so loved the combination of jungle-covered hills and ocean.
But there are volcanoes and cloud forests and I want to see quetzals and there are places with hot springs and butterfly gardens like the Blue Mountain Resort.
I hope this is a decision I have to struggle with some time in the relatively near future.
