What happened in the past months....

For three months (March-May), we had two volunteers from South Africa at the station, Sally and Dale, who really helped us with a lot of different work at the station. I will blog on some of their work afterwards. Their last work included the construction of a roof for our garden. Now we (or better our vegetables) won’t have anymore problems with the heavy rainfalls during the rainy season…

After our lucky mammal sightings in February, we added another fantastic sighting on our list. Dale spotted a sloth behind our house. Again it was getting dark and unfotunately we couldn’t take pictures of it. But with the binoculars it was possible to identify it as a Two-toed Sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni). First we thought we probably must see it again in the same tree the next day, but then we found out that this species is nocturnal and the next day we couldn’t find it anymore….Probably it had changed its food tree in that night, but who knows, maybe it was still there, sitting on the same tree, perfectly camouflaged and smiling down at us……
