Costa Rica - Part 4

More images from Bosque del Cabo Lodge on the Osa Peninsula.

Because of the shallow topsoil, the trees had evolved various strategies to support themselves.  We found these buttress roots quite pretty.



This vine looks like a giant spring



On the Osa Peninsula, the forest floor was warm, damp and dim

Green and Black Poison Dart Frog



After a night of heavy rains, these land crabs were everywhere!  They ranged in size from about an inch to 3 or four inches.  Once it dried up, they disappeared again.



A small herd of White-lipped Peccaries frequently 
wandered through the grounds of the lodge.



This Brown Basilisk lizard would come and climb into the vegetation next to the bar during happy hour.
