On one of our P-days we had the opportunity to discover a few interesting things about the jungle.
It is true
the people living in the jungle regions use about
everything for food. These large grubs that feed off of wood
in the jungle. The locals say eating these grubs will help your respiration.
How would you prefer them, raw or cooked? You can eat them
Many of the people do not have stoves to cook with inside their homes
because of the heat of the jungle. So often times you will see people
using a BBQ to cook in the street. Here you can see barbequed
grubs, bananas, tacacho and some type of seed.
Victoria Regia, this is the name of the giant
lily pads that grow in the jungle. They are strong enough to support
a rather large bird on top of them.
Young aligators can actually jump quite high to obtain food.
As they get older their weight prohibits this but they can lunge with
great force to obtain their prey.
This boa is about 9 feet long. Boas do not bite
but they kill their prey by constricting.
