2016—Anteater

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.
