I took these tropical photographs in the Veragua Park near Limon, Costa Rica, on Oct.31, 2013.  Photographs are of a Strawberry Red Poison Dart Frog; a Red-eyed Tree Frog, a WhipTailLizard; a Three-toed Sloth; and a Howler Monkey (black-colored).  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.

  1. how very awesome and very exotic!

    • Hi Theresa, Saw a lot in a few hours. I would like to return to Costa Rica. Took that picture of the Sloth from inside the bus so the picture is not the best (sloth was a long way away as well). Have an excellent day!

  2. Hi All, One thing I did not mention was that these critters were out in the wild and not in a zoo-like exhibit.

  3. These are amazing shots! Thank you for sharing!

  4. Great shots, Linda.. I got stuck looking at that red frog…. Yipes!!!


    • Hi Betsy, Yes, it is a poisonous frog, especially so when it eats its favorite beetles. I have read that these frogs are sold in places for exotic pets. Of course, changing their diet helps render a lot less poison made, and/or less potent poison in the frog. Yikes! Have a super good day tomorrow!

  5. Pretty cool assortment! The lizard is a very pretty fellow!

    • Hi Montucky, I had seen about three of these lizards that day. Their tails are brilliant turquoise blue. They are quite flashy and beautiful. Costa Rica seems to have a large number of very brightly-colored small animals and insects. Have a great day tomorrow and thanks for your always nice comments!

  6. Cool critter post! I love seeing different wildlife. The sloth is a neat animal. Great sighting and photos. Have a happy day!
