The next day we went into Manuel Antonio Park. We saw some three toed sloths, a white faced capuchin monkey, lot's of iguanas, a poisonous snake and lots of great beach. 

On this page I have put some of the animals that we saw on our trip.

This hummingbird was in Monteverde

The toucan and turkey vulture were near Lake Arenal. The golden orb spider was in Selva Verde.

The Cicadas were everywhere.. making the loudest racket constantly.. trying to , but not quite drowning out the frog noises. This strangely colored one was in Manuel Antonio.

These grasshoppers were almost the size on my hand. They were in Selva Verde

When we stayed in Por Dicha (Nuevo Arenal) the next door neighbors kept their horses in an adjacent field. Across the street was a Macadamia Nut farm and the owner, although we had only waved to her, left us a bag of nuts from her farm while we were out. 

In Selva Verde I saw this sloth in the tree. It is very hard to see from this picture, but it is the brownish thing in the middle. The air plant is kind of resting on it's head.

In Manuel Antonio we saw this sloth feeding .. rather slowly!

Squawking soaked parrots in a rain shower.

Centipede or Millipede?
I guess the difference is that a centipede has one pair of legs per segment and a millipede has more than one pair. This guy has 2 pairs of legs per segment, so I guess it is a millipede. I think it was 3 or 4  inches long.

One of many large iguanas in Manuel Antonio.

This 6 inch moth was near a gas station rest room on the road back from Manuel Antonio to San Jose. I couldn't ask for a better contrast of color.
