Our last two days in the Ecuadorian Amazon consisted of more day and night hikes and canopy tower visits.
I was really surprised to see new growth on branches that had obviously been cut a while back. This branch was used as a hand-rail but still had a few fresh leaves. Is it the humidity that permits this?
I think this is the Amazon Wood Lizard (Enyalioides laticeps) aka aka “”Guichenot’s Dwarf Iguana” aka “Sacha runa”
I think this was a blunthead tree snake (Imantodes cenchoa)
Palm weevil grubs (rhynchophorus palmarum?) aka Grugru with yucca. The larvae eat palm hearts. The grubs were covered with some type of sauce and then grilled.
