Ack- Suzie, I remember those crabs just too well.
In the fall they used to be all over the place in a hotel I used to stay and in Puerto as well.....mating season maybe??
And boy- they are FAST if they choose to be.

I have to dig deep for it- but I know I have a pic somewhere of my Exes dog seconds before she realized it is NOT a good idea to corner one of those.......as they'll "honk" your nose.
I'll never forget her yelp- but that was the only way for her to learn to stay away from them apparently.

Does anyone know what is an insect that looks like an ant but moves like a catterpillar? It is light brown and just a bit bigger than a normal ant. I got bitten by one on two places on my hand and it was pretty painful. The odd thing was that the bite didn't look like an usual bite (a red bump) but rather like a blister. It took ages to heal completely, I've been home for 2 months and it has just now completely vanished.

Any thoughts?

This is a tomato horn worm that had been attacked by a wasp. The wasp lays its eggs into the caterpillar and then they hatch.

My all time favorite critter pic.

These boys were very proud of their little crabs and were excited to have their photo taken. (They each have a crab on their arm)
I gave them a few pesos after the pic. and they were thrilled. Their mother was as well.

Met this little guy at our hotel.

He was not bothered at all. We left him alone.

Nice pix of the "bugs". We didn't find many, the closer you get to the ocean with the inland breeze, the fewer you will find.

I've seen others, but not often. I think they're kinda cool, actually. Like I always say, they were there long before I was... I've got no business taking their lives if they're not planning on taking mine.
