It is possible that the little fellow on the left has grown into a beautiful relaxed looking adult sloth. I'll tell you why.
Masters in disguise!
Can you spot the Sunbittern immediately or do you need a second good look? Sometimes it happens that you 'don't see any animals'. This is because most of them are masters in disguise.
Observing the Beechcraft trail!
Black Curassows are also known as one of Kabalebo's residents. They are often caught by one of the trophy cams which gives us another opportunity to watch them from a safe distance. This time they are spotted on the Beechcraft trail.
Rufescent Tiger Heron!
This is the Rufescent Tiger Heron, one of the residents of Kabalebo.
Hummingbirds in Kabalebo!
Hummingbirds are known as the gem of the rainforest. Small colorful birds who can mesmerize their surrounding by their appearance. Here are some hummingbirds I managed to photograph in Kabalebo.
Observing the River Cabin trail!
This picture was taken in 2012, the year that I started to use trophy cams in Kabalebo. Now 4 years later we are checking the trophy cam on the River Cabin trail.
How to tell the difference between a juvenile and an adult Macaw.
The Green-bellied Hummingbird (Amazilia viridigaster) has finally arrived this year in Kabalebo! Welcome back little fellow!
I finally managed to photograph the Guianan Squirrel. Patience does pay off!
These pictures were taken on March 9, 2016 during a brief hike at the River Cabin. I was accompanied by one of our guides, Keiran, and with his 'hawk' eyes the Guianan Squirrel was 'discovered'.
Right above us between the dense vegetation we spotted something brown hidden right behind a branch. After patiently waiting for a couple of minutes it revealed itself to us, like it felt sorry that we had to wait with the possibility of straining our neck too.
What a beauty! It was eating something that looked like a nut. It is known that the Guianan Squirrel is an active and agile small rodent. I have seen the Guianan Squirrel a couple of times during a jungle hike but never before was I able to photograph it … until now.
The Guianan Squirrel (Scuirus aestuans) is locally known as Surinaamse Eekhoorn or Redo Bonboni. A widespread and common little fellow, but easily overseen.
A couple of days ago I spotted and photographed a small group of Brown Capuchin Monkeys. One question went through my mind after seeing these pictures: 'What were they staring at?'
Observing pier side!
Since 2012 I have been using trophy cams to help me observe the wild in Kabalebo. Today we are checking the cam from the pier.
Small birds have always been a challenge for me to photograph. Especially agile ones who like to play hide-and-seek between the grass stems. In this case I am talking about the Seedeaters.

It was a challenge to photograph the fauna world while it was raining occasionally.
