Not only was the bird life plentiful but we were able to see, identify and photograph things like the 1. Blue Jeans and Strawberry Poison Dart Frogs, 2. Sand crabs, 3. Blue Murpho Butterflies 4. 3 toed sloths, 5. Four striped whiptail green snake, 6. Green Iguanas, 7. a Baby Giant Leatherback Sea Turtle, 8. Squirrel Monkeys and Howler Monkeys plus unusual plants like the 9. Shrimp plant and 10. Hot Lips. Perhaps too many to mention, you just have to go and see for yourself. (Such beauty, color, variety and not enough time to see and photograph it all - see pictures below)
