    Wow, Rene- what an incredible assortment of creatures! Thanks esp. for posting the myriapods, amphlygids, uropygids and what is probably the strangest looking slug(?) I've ever seen.

    NICE I think we have Acridotheres tristis here in Fl (escaped from Miami Metro Zoo after hurricane Andrew)
     
  12. Niiice.. Rather unfortunate that the rainforest there is almost gone. Were you able to make it to any primary forest or just secondary growth/plantations?
