Midway through our Costa Rican Death March we stopped to rest and eat something.  Three of our group continued across the river to explore more of the park.  Richard and I opted to stay put for a while.  While we rested, I saw a yellow headed caracara fly by and got up to see where it landed.  As I walked past the trail, barely visible from the edge of the river, two people with a guide, were staring up into a tree.  Thinking the caracara had landed there, I walked over, only to be treated to another first,  an anteater perched high up in a tree.  This anteater, known as a lesser anteater or a northern Tamandua was relaxed and seemed not at all concerned by my presence near him.
