... there was a tiny bright orange rainforest frog with blue legs called the blue jeans frog. This is apparently poisonous so when it hopped out of is hands into the boat we all screamed and nearly fell in from the panic, with our guide crying from laughter!

But we kick on as Leesh mentions if we run up a few hills the pain is over quicker.. I see her point but I wasn't that motivated haha. We finally make ...
... very similar to a wild boar. Carlos actually showed us how Perla had a scent gland, and sprayed some for us. It was not a pleasant smell. But Carlos said people still like to have peccaries as pets. I guess they get used to the smell, because the peccaries spray their territory regularly. And Carlos said the smell made it easy for the authorities to know which houses have peccaries.
Carlos also talked about how peccaries that are rescued can't be returned to the ...
