|Andres with the turtle.|
|What a face!|
|I didn't want to get my fingers too close to that mouth.|
|Three happy herpers (four if you include the dude|
behind the camera).
Sadly, these turtles been heavily exploited as food for decades and are now classified as critically endangered. They are only found in southern Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala and it was a new species for Andres, who is a very experienced herper. We were so lucky.
Just to add to the excitement I then discovered the Biological Station's first ever Ruby-throated Hummingbird, a beautiful male that started coming to the feeders!
|1st ever Ruby-throated Hummer for Las Guacamayas!|
I was chuffed to bits.

|A bonus Long-billed Hermit to finish.|
