There is a ton of wildlife at school…
Lizards–Of course there are geckos everywhere, but there are also big iguanas (2-3 feet in length). Jesse sometimes spots them out the window of Alex’s classroom.
Birds–We have toucans that are black with big beaks and we also have parrots (or parakeets?) that are green and yellow and red…very cool looking!
Spiders–Giant hair things that I think are tarantulas! ewwww
Dogs–Every once in awhile we get a stray dog wandering through campus. I’m a little surprised they make it in since we are surrounded by a gate, but with the massive number of stray dogs here I suppose it only makes sense.
And also wildlife at home…
Bugs–We have giant cockroaches (about 2 inches long). There are not a ton, we’ve probably only found about 5 the whole time we’ve been here, but they still freak me out. ugh
Rodents–BIG rats. The first time I saw one from a distance I thought it was a squirrel!! Luckily these are not inside our apartment (so far)…they just scurry around the courtyard at night.
Lizards–Lots and lots of geckos. They make a funny clicking noise so even when we can’t see them we can usually hear them!
