Canoeing down the river

Vine snake along the river


When we got to Belize we went to the Mystic River Resort. We saw a lot of birds like the aracari, the blue-crowned motmot, and the crimson-collared tanager. We went river tubing down the river twice, and canoed down the river too. Along the river we saw a lot of green iguanas in the treetops. The iguanas go to the top of the trees so they get warm from the sun because they are cold blooded. If a predator tries to attack, they will drop into the water and they can stay under water for about 15 minutes to hide from the predator.

We also saw a vine snake in a tree along the river. It was shaped like the number 8. When we were in the restaurant of the Mystic River Resort, we saw a gigantic tarantula that was as big as my hand! It walked past our table and my brother saw it first.
