On the lawn of the Mazumbai rest house.
This sucker was BIG! I had the good sense to include the GPS in there for scale, but not enough to think to include the coordinates...
I find this variety of chicken hilarious, because they perpetually look like they had a terrible shock. I've never seen a chicken like this in the US, and I laughed when I first saw this one.
Garden plant. I don't think this was at Irente View Farm, but someplace like that in the West Usambaras. Will try to get a more precise location by looking back at notes.
I see at least 6 skinks in this photo! I don't remember the circumstances under which I took this, but it looks like I was looking down a wall or a fence somehow.
I have a couple of videos of the bats leaving their roost trees and flying in all directions.
There was a larger Milicia nearby, and it was suggested by the folks nearby that this sapling was planted by the bats since they eat the fruits.
Dead on the wire.

In weeds along road.
It was about 10m up a tree near a stream, so I couldn't get close
I think this is pistillate flowers even though it looks big enough to be a fruit. This particular tree is growing right next to the road.
I can't remember which Heliosciurus species is found in Amani (according to Kingdon). I don't think this is Paraxerus because of the body shape and tail stripes.
Giant elephant shrews (Rhynchocyon petersi). These guys are SO cool! Not dispersing seeds (which is what this camera was set up to watch), just foraging in the leaf litter for invertebrates.
Seed and green fruit (partially eaten).
This is a juvenile, only about 1.5-2 cm. I know I have the name somewhere...
Seeds pooped out by a hornbill.
Unripe/immature fruit. Fruits take a year to mature. Fruits ripen and fall January-March while trees flower simultaneously. This species has distinctive pink and white flowers and retains more lower branches than most other large tree species in the area. Those characteristics along with the enormous melon-sized fruits make it one of the easiest species to identify.
Not sure of the species because it wasn't in bloom. Growing on rocks very close to a waterfall.
I don't expect anyone else to ever confirm this, but I was pretty obsessed with this species and got good at identifying it from a distance.
