I’ve been meaning to write a post like this for a while. Since we moved into this house, we regularly encounter new, interesting creatures. While I don’t always take photos, I think I have enough now to make a decent post. I don’t know the names of most of these animals, but all that you see in the photos and videos below were found either in our house or in our garden here in Grecia, Costa Rica.
Some are dangerous, like the cute little fuzzy caterpillar, where simply touching it can cause swelling, numbness, fever, and more. Or the cane toads that can shoot out poison strong enough to kill a dog (if it gets in the blood stream). Others are just cute like the squirrels and the hummingbirds. My favorite are the cool green lizards with blue tails, who got a little too carried away in their mating dance (see what I mean in the video below).
