Rats, There Was a Snake in Our Garage!

A Rat Snake, that is!

Mom freaked out when she saw this hissing Rat Snake stuck in a glue trap in our garage, and if you look closely, there is a mouse stuck with him too. I admit, it was a little scary and I hear they eat small mammals like rats and mice. I sure hope they don't eat Jelly Beans! I better be careful!

These snakes are common in North Texas, but not venomous. But they will hiss, strike or bit if harrassed.

I am not sure if I like this new animal friend. I will have to think about this one!

(P.S. I have more Costa Rican animal friends, but will take a break from Costa Rica, and save them for later posts.)

Monkey See, Monkey Do!

I hope everyone is not getting bored with Costa Rica, but mom just could not get enough of all the animals there! She went wild (literally) taking pictures of all my new animal friends!

These black Monkeys were swinging through the trees right outside of mom's hut!

They are called Mantled Howler Monkeys. Can you see the little baby here with his mama?

The manager of the place mom stayed at, said this older Howler Monkey had lost his Monkey rankings, and now was exiled away from the rest of his family and his whole group. He was a castaway.....poor Monkey!

Mom only caught one shot of one other type of Monkey, called a Spider Monkey.
I wonder if he likes to play with spiders as much as I do?

I like my new Monkey friends!
