Our friendly howler monkey was back this week. I did not get a picture of him since there were too many branches in the way and my camera on my phone is not that great. But, I did put a picture of him from last year when he was posing for us. Howler monkeys are the loudest of all the monkeys. His howl sounds like a whooping roar and they like to tell everyone where their territory is. We have had 2 days of his howling in the morning and afternoons. :) But, I do like it when he hangs out at the house. He makes me laugh at his antics and loud noises.
Fruit, Orchids, and Lizards
We found a few more guanabanas that needed bags over them for protection. So our tree received a few more plastic bags on it. It is a very colorful tree now, sporting red and blue bags all over. I might put lights on it for the holidays, since it already has so many things hanging on it already.
I was told that orchids grew all over the trees here, but had never really looked for them. This week, I noticed that almost EVERY tree around the house has some sort of orchid growing on it. I can't wait to see them bloom!
We also have tons of lizards around the property, but this week I found what looks like a baby iguana. Up on the coffee farm we normally do not get iguanas because it is a little too cold for them, so I am not sure how this one got here or if it is actually a different kind of lizard. He was very curious and would have followed me around, but I had to hide him from the puppies, so I put him in a tree. Hopefully, he will stay safe.
Coming up soon
There is more on our list, but these were the next 3 items we will be working on. It should be an exciting couple of weeks.
