We had a fabulous time in Nicaragua in February-March 2013. Though primarily a bat trip, we saw a great range of mammals, including some rarities like this Water Opossum, photographed by George Smiley.
That’s me, squeezing through a small tunnel in the Tamana Hill Bat Cave. I was happy to get back out! We saw eight of about 11 bat species that live in the cave.

Silky Anteater – fantastic!

One of many fabulous birds sighted was a Green Honeycreeper.
Special thanks to George Jett and Gwen Brewer (shown in the gallery) for letting me use their wonderful photos. I took the Silky Anteater image, they took the rest. Gwen has a Davy’s Naked-backed Bat flying over her head!
