Animals and Plants
Weʼll have to watch for snakes and poisonous insects. Listen for clues about what is around you.
Watch where you step and use a machete to clear vegetation as you walk. Using a long stick ahead of you can also help you avoid spider webs.
In the rain forest, there are many kinds of animals ranging from harmless (leaf cutter ants) to weird (Howler Monkeys), to dangerous (Jaguars and wild boar).
Be careful handling plants – some have thorns and some are poisonous. Weʼll be working with experienced guides, so Iʼm not too worried… yet!
Who knows what else we will be doing, maybe working on a banana farm, or doing research in the jungle.
