The Stemadenia donnel smithi, has a magnetic draw. Not only does the sweet nectar of its large yellow flowers attract butterflies, moths, hummingbirds and bees but its fruits also draw over 22 species of birds (including toucans and woodpeckers) and small mammals such as kinkajous, squirrels, and even monkeys.
Probably the most interesting species to note is the homo sapiens sapiens…

The Beauty of the Belize Jungle

There are animals and insects in all shapes and sizes, looking for food, crawling, flying, hunting and being hunted…Much better than any cinema! I have a cohune tree to thank for my thatch roof on my house, four rosewood posts to keep the house from falling, Iguana wiss keeps the sticks strapped together forever! Dry season is finally over and some rain has finally come! The jungle smells damp and is coming back to life. I have been planting seeds, flowers and trees, getting dirty in the mud!
