These two slugs appeared to be doing some kind of courtship ritual where they repeatedly "bowed" to each other. I recorded several minutes of video, but apparently never took one still photo, so this image is just a screen shot from the video.
I didn't see these birds very often. I think they came up to eat the termites. Our house was one of the best-lit houses around so it attracted a lot of termites each night.
Huge termite emergence. They were everywhere! They taste like popcorn (mild flavor, slightly crunchy, better with salt).
Nice camouflage if it were on a tree.
This might be the least favorite thing I ever found in a seed trap. Creeeepy! Definitely some kind of worm. Possibly a parasite that came out of poop.
It was resting on that branch while we were out looking for chameleons with @filups.
A little house guest! I suspect it might have come in looking for termites (they were plentiful, as you can see from the wings in the photo).
Flowers found on the forest floor. Not sure if it was a tree or vine.
Seedlings with seed still attached.
Flower petals. They smell sooooo good. I wanted to eat them.
Handled by a bat (see all of the claw and tooth marks?).
This type of chicken has these crazy feathers that curl upwards. I just think they look ridiculous. I've only seen them in Tanzania and only in a few places.
Or similar species?
Growing on a well-decomposed log of Anthocleista grandiflora (according to my notes).
Eaten by bats and caught in a seed trap.
I *think* I remembered the name correctly for this one.
A mouse liked to chew on my soap. What's up with that?
Escaped from cultivation and naturalizing in this area near Emau Hill Forest Camp. Definitely invasive and competing for habitat with African violets. :-(
A colony of ants took up residence under the leaves that had fallen in one of my seed traps. These were the most aggressive, nasty little ants I ever encountered (aside from crossing a safari ant trail). I know this photo is worthless and I'll never get an id, but I wanted to document this. We had to come back later to check the trap. They weren't big but they were fierce. This is the only time I ever encountered these.
I think we might have eventually id'd this via germination.
Scarified by a giant rat.
This herbaceous vine was very common and often grew up the trunks of large trees.
Eaten by fruit bats.
Eaten by a squirrel.
I think these were just loose on the forest floor, having fallen from above. I have no photos of any other plants parts and suspect this was a liana or epiphyte.
Eaten by a bat.
Probably eaten by bats.
Stinging caterpillar. The shape of the leaf/lets (more visible in second photo) and the fact that it's someone else's hand in the photo make me think that this caterpillar is probably on Sorindeia madagascariensis (I'm allergic to it like poison ivy).
