May 22, 2018 - Delfin II
Where to begin on the highlights of the day? On our pre-breakfast skiff ride we found a pair of cream-colored woodpeckers deep into their morning breakfast as they tore an ant nest apart. Our naturalist spotted a three-toed sloth high in the forest trees, a compact sloth-ball that was still too cold to start climbing around.
After breakfast a short, one-mile walk along the trail at Casual was incredibly fruitful. Included in our sightings were: a green anaconda, red-tailed boa, pink-toed tarantula and a lovely little female three-toed sloth practically at eye level.
The colors seen on our hike all came together in a rainbow as we navigated up the black water of Nauto Caño. The treasure under the rainbow? An amazing sighting of a great potoo and a hollow tree stuffed with noisy night monkeys. Another perfect day in the Amazon Basin.
