The Night Tour with Tracie
"The Bug Lady"
Drake Bay, Costa Rica
Discover the hidden treasures of Drake Bay, Costa Rica with Tracie "The Bug Lady" .
Costa Rica is home to three-toed and two-toed sloths, both of which are found in Drake Bay.
Although they are quite mobile, three-toed sloths usually have a favorite tree in which they spend about 20 percent of their time.
Once a week, they will descend from the treetops to urinate and defecate. A sloth may loose up to a third of it's body weight on one of these trips! The reason for their descent remains a mystery.
The boa constrictor is Costa Rica's largest and heaviest snake. Despite their size, boas have a rather docile disposition and are not inclined to react aggressively when approached.
Throughout the Costa Rican countryside, many people believe that boas are venomous- but only between 6 PM and 6 AM. This persecuted snake is the subject of many myths and legends. They are reputed to give birth to several species of venomous snakes and are even said to devour prey as large as cattle and humans! Of course, all these claims are unfounded.
The thunderous call of the howler monkey ranks as one of the rainforest's most captivating sounds.
The monkeys use their exceptionally loud call to keep neighboring troops at an amicable distance, avoiding physical confrontations.
