This is not an exhaustive display of all the bugs in Colombia, nor am I planning to educate you on them all. This is simply a post to show you some of the bugs (scientific name) that I’ve encountered in the past week.
This one scared the living daylights out of us, as you might imagine. We were happy to discover it’s not venomous, and its bite is supposedly less painful than that of a bee sting.
These guys are all over the floor in our living quarters, and seem to enjoy rolling up and dying on the bathroom floor overnight.
Giant cricket – 3-4 inches long.
I have hundreds of photos, and will be here another week. Is there anything you guys want to see? Ideas for future themes (churches, wildlife, etc.)?
