We saw a cool frog in Puerto Lopez. Took some photos. Figured we’d see more like him over time. Did some research. It is a rare Ceratophrys stolzmanni (Pacific horned frog) found only in Ecuador and Peru. Haven’t seen one since.

Our friends rented an apartment. The owner assured them that there was hot water (many homes in Ecuador have only cold water). Turns out he had installed a hot water heater for the building’s only incoming water pipe. There was no cold water.
Some friends were mountain biking in Machalilla National Park and came upon a snake. They stopped and took cell phone pictures, getting close for better shots. When they shared their photos, they learned they were lucky the venomous snake was not in an irritable mood.
