Dominican Republic: Critters

(Click through to see the 5 images in this post).

In the Dominican Republic for a week, our time was pretty evenly spent looking out at the ocean, up at the birds, and down at the ground looking for critters. Ok, maybe there was a little time spent gazing into each others’ eyes – it was our 10-yr anniversary after all, and we were on vacation without the kids – but not much of that, there were too many adventures to be had!

We managed to get off the hotel grounds a few times, and spent some time in Bayahibe, on Isla Saona, and for a hike in the Parque Nacional del Este, entering from the NE access point in Boca de Yuma. The bird post will come later this week, but here are few of the critters we encountered here and there in our travels.

Algonquin – Part 6

Some other wildlife critters we encountered. A couple cute and cool ones.

And a couple not so much.

Ok, seriously, water snakes? WTF! Coming from Alberta, this is a new concept for me. One I’m not so willing to embrace.

Yes, he is blowing bubbles. Um…does that mean he’s threatening me? I’m outta here!
