    Nasty little suckers. I try to avoid leeches, if possible. There are just some places they don't belong so I am living the experience vicariously through your pictures. Thanks for sharing

    Although it's been pretty stale lately, I check this forum in hopes of seeing threads like these. Those are some of the nicest examples of attenboroughii I've seen. The same can be said about most of the plants in this thread. Thanks, Dex!

    Yeah that was probably the coolest amphibian I saw on the trip by far. Its hard to say if I even heard them. The jungle was so loud at night, there were so many noises; it was hard to tell what was an insect a bird or an amphibian.

    thanks so much for sharing, the plants look amazing!
    The trade off was that there weren't too many mosquitoes, so yeah they weren't too bad. You just have to be vigilant about picking them off!

    Excellent shots! That "weird ant plant" is hilarious - for reasons I'd rather not type here...

    Great shots! N. attenboroughii is always a showstopper, but the color on the pulchra are fantastic! Those are some FAT truncatas, too. By the way, the creature you labeled as a planarian is actually a hammerhead slug. Interesting animal nonetheless though....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Oh well then you would probably find the upper pitcher of N. surigaoensis quite interesting.
