The hike at Cerro Biotope Cahui didn't live up to the gruesome beginning - after the start, things were very much alive! Alive, instead of coiled up, floating in jars. As soon as I saw Jekyll's table - full of skulls and all things bizarre - I knew this would make a great post for Halloween month.
The nature preserve was located on the tip of lake Peten in El Remate, Guatemala. If you're lucky, you might see all of the above. Or unlucky.
A monkey perhaps?

A peccary or Tapir.
It's alive! A streaked-headed woodpecker.
A beautiful grey fox.
A Violaceous Trogan.
