  9. The photos are brill, they bring back fond memories of when I went to the same region in Sept 2001. I especially remember that certain ant, Over there they are called bullet ants and for good reason, when youve been bit by one, it feels like youve been shot "not a nice experience to be bit by these" ! !:eek: . The overall flora and fawna as to be seen to be believed, it is like been on another planet, the way some plain looking trees can host some of the largest, most beautifull plants. As for the animal life, I could go on for ages, I found it quite a buzz tickling the Ts out of there burrows to look at .
