All About Acorns!
After spotting the largest predator in the area we went looking for a little song bird. This gorgeous little was so fun!
We loved watching these little birdies in the trees! They are sooooo cute!
We headed to local treehouse to spot the next animal as it is the largest predator in the area. We thought it best to stay out of it’s way, but wow is it a gorgeous cat! Are you ready to learn who we saw?
Jaguar Fun Facts:
We loved watching this stealthy predator prowl the forest floor. They do spend most of their time on the ground, but the are able climbers.
We went looking for one funny looking animal of the rainforest. Tapirs, with their long snouts look like they might be related to Ellie, but in reality they are related to Edmond! Neat! Today, we are meeting the largest of the tapir family.
Baird’s Tapir Fun Facts:
There are efforts to protect these beautiful animals. It would be a terrible thing to lose such a unique animal.
After meeting the macaws yesterday, we ran into a small resident of the rainforest. These little amphibians are brightly colored with big red eyes. They also make you jump! Hehehe!
Red Eyed Tree Frog Fun Facts:
We love these little frogs. They are so beautiful with their bright green eyes. That splash of blue on their legs make them the fashionistas of the rainforest. Hahaha!
Hello! We went birding today! We were looking for one of the most brightly colored and gorgeous macaws on the planet. Come meet them with us!
Scarlet Fun Facts:
We enjoyed watching these beautiful birds. They are social and intelligent. They are kept as pets, which is often a bad idea. They have long life spans and are very high maintenance. They can also be very destructive.
After our all nighter looking for frogs, we stayed up a bit longer to find a little bird before napping away the day. This little fast birdie was not easy to spot as it is one of the smallest hummingbirds around.
Scintillant Hummingbird Fun Facts:
These teeny birds are so adorable. They are Ellie and Edmond sized :)!
We went frogging during the evening. Costa Rica is one of the best places for spotting amphibians. We went looking for a very new species and we were not dissappointed.
Diane’s Bare-Hearted Glass Frog:
We often think it is crazy that scientists are still discovering new species. It is so important to protect the wild places on earth so that all animals- known and not known have a healthy habitat to call home.
Hello and greetings from Central America! We are settling in to our tree house that we are using for base camp. We’re going to learn more about this gorgeous little country today before we begin some of the awesome animals next week! Woohoo!
