    BooBoo gets a Happy Birthday this month too, if you have one left--she turned 13 around the middle of the month.

    Congrats,

    She's about the same age as my Monet - he'll be 14 in the summer - and they could easily be related they look so much alike. My avatar - obviously Not Monet - has, sadly, not taught him any push ups yet.

    Happy Birthday Boo Boo. Lot's of Feb. animal birthdays and anniversaries for it being the shortest month and all.

    (I never read Boo Boo's name without hearing Yogi Bear saying Boo-Boo. )

    Interesting fact........there are more cats as pets in this country, but there are more dog owners. Us cat people, which you wouldn't know even exist on this board, tend to own multiples, which is how we got the higher numbers.

    heyyy Boo-Boo-- is that a pic-a-nic basket I see?

    Here's some of the animals I saw on my trip to Belize last week, as promised...

    It's a really neat thing to see the parrots in their natural habitat; they blend in more than you would think, but are easy to find due to all the noise they make!



    I don't know why exactly, but I forunt the leafcutter ants in the jungle fascinating--there were so many in a colony that it was easy to see the 'road' worn in the dirt between the food source and the nest!



    The national bird of Belize, the Keel Billed Toucan. The little backpackers hotel where I stopped had lots of tamarind and guava trees that attracted bunches of these every morning and evening, as well as a really bizarre looking black and yellow beaked Toucan that I was never able to get a shot of.



    These are Black Howler Monkeys--the Belizian people call the "baboons", so you go to the "Baboon Sanctuary" for the best chance of seeing them. They are highly endangered, but in this area the population has rebounded to several thousand I think the effort to conserve these guys is quite amazing given how very, very, poor the local people are. Also, when visiting the Sanctuary, I hired a little old man to lead me to a monkey, and he was fascinating to listen to. His knowledge of medicinal uses for the local flora was amazing--I wish I had had time for a longer tour.

    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.
