Jungle Fauna of Panama

Some wildlife of Panama.


Tamandua (anteater)


Three-toed Sloth

Caiman (Crocodilian)

Bird Spider

Leafcutter Ants (everywhere .. always)

Bushmaster (venomous snake) - Strike provoked on heated dummy arm

Howler Monkey (you should hear them complain about the rain!)

Black Jaguar

More Cutters (their trails are difficult to avoid in the dark!)

And let's not leave out my personal favorites, the giant grasshoppers.
These things range in size from 6 - 9 inches in length.

This small-ish one landed on my boot one day while I was on duty.
I always wondered if it was safe to turn your back on these things.
