Chiapas, Mexico: Los Aves y Monos

While I saw a lot of different types of birds in Chiapas, most were seen briefly or too difficult to photograph with my camera. I have a couple blurry photos of a Toucan that dropped by for a second. This was one of the highlights of the trip and I believe the first thing I said afterwards was “well, I can go home happy now”.

Also it seems my camera didn’t like howler monkeys too much, because most of those photos are blurry as well. Here they are anyways.

Chiapas, Mexico: Los Lagartos

I saw mainly three types of lizards in Chiapas: geckos, iguanas, and basilisks. The geckos were mainly at night, and were quite small. I saw iguanas near the hotel, as well as at the Palenque ruins. I saw the basilisks at an ecopark, as well as some other lizards that may have been related.
