This caecilian (legless amphibian) slid away before I could get a good focus. Picture an earthworm about 2-1/2 feet long; that's what it looked like.


Really big millipedes were frequently seen

Poison-arrow frog


One of two snakes that we saw, both very small. The real head is hidden in the litter; the fake head is a corkscrew curl in the tail.

Bird feeders everywhere attract squirrels.
