  1. A beautiful find, the only other photo on the site was taken from a zoo, so this one is very welcome. Posted 3 years ago
  2. Thanks! These were really at their wild home. If you venture in the trails next to Arenal you have high chances to at least hear them in the trees. They are very shy so once you locate them you have to be careful not to make much noise, otherwise they move away :-) Posted 3 years ago, modified 3 years ago
