Among tall Ceiba trees at Caracol
Monkeys howled in the distance, and we spotted a flock of at least 20 keel-billed toucans (the national bird of Belize) settle in a tree overlooking the ruins. But our favorite critters of the day were the small, crawling, sort. Angel tasted termites straight from the nest (they taste like dirt), and we watched as George picked up a large leaf-cutter ant. Itís pinchers wiggled constantly, and when George held it against a leaf, it held on tight.
