Every once in a while we think we've pushed back the jungle and we're living in relative civilization. But, every once in a while the jungle pushes back and lets us know that it's all an illusion...like this morning, when we let the dogs out and they ran barking into the jungle. I marched into the jungle, grabbed Kitty (our loaner dog at the moment) and marched her out of the jungle. I put her down, and she ran back into the jungle. Tom went after her, and came out asking if I was blind, because she'd been barking directly at this boa eating an agouti.
The boa had the agouti all the way down and was heading back into deeper jungle in about an hour...but I think I'll be keeping the dogs close to the house for the rest of the day!
