This huge thing landed on our window. Too bad the photo does not show his face: it looks like a beard.

Description

Resembled pieces of jelly in the sand, but when I poked it with my flip flops they emitted bright lines along the body rhythmically in response to the stimulus. Found six specimens, with more or less the same size. It was a full moon and low tide night.

Looks so much like an alien coming straight from Pandora...

Description

"Not often seen in mangroves, but in adjacent estuaries, on the shores of protected bays with gentle tidal cycles. Inhabit open spaces, exposed to full sun. (...) This Uca builds their burrows closer to the water in wetlands along the lower line of the tide. The male has the largest claw with wide, flat fingers like scissors blades."

More information about this crab here (in Portuguese):

Description

Apparently killed by strangulation in fishing nets: there was a deep cut in the neck. A pity that I was only able to register by cell phone camera.

Maybe Typhlops or Epictia? Head and tail with yellow spots. I almost couldn't see the eyes, they were sort of skin covered tiny beads. Found dead next to a lake.

Dacrymycetes? Never noticed this kind of fungus in the region. Very bright orange color. The soil was full of them.
