Jungle Walk and Tarantula Hunting

Thursday – March 31, 2011

Still our first day in the Amazon rainforest.  This evening we took about a mile walk through the jungle near the lodge.  Paul explained many of the plants and insects and provided highlights of both their medicinal use and their dangers.  That evening after dinner, we all met up with flashlights in hand and walked around the lodge compound looking for the tarantulas.   We didn’t have to look far…. the holes were just a few feet from our cabins!
