Meanwhile, here's a picture of an absolutely beautiful little snake the guide pointed out while I was on the boat wildlife-spotting thing. It was just hanging out in a tree, right over the water. I never would have spotted it myself, but once I saw it, amazing.
It's very tiny, and beautifully delicate, but the guide said it was related to rattlesnakes, so I opted not to try to pet it. (No, seriously, I don't touch wild critters, not even if they're totally harmless, because I'm not necessarily harmless, and may carry germs or whatever. Best to look, take a picture. In this case, take a picture with a telephoto lens!)
