La Tirimbina Rainforest Reserve
Species diversity is spectacular in this lowland rain forest. Nearly half of the 850 species of birds in Costa Rica are found in this area, along with five of the six species of cats in the country. Peccaries, agoutis, coatis, sloths, and howler and spider monkeys are seen frequently, as are showy birds of the trogon family, chestnut-mandibled and keel-billed toucans, collared araçaris, white crowned parrots, and hummingbirds whose iredescence shimmers in shafts of light. The wet season rains bring out deafening choruses of frogs; flashes of the tiny red and blue poison-dart frog catch the eye along trails year round. Numerous caimans, turtles, lizards, and snakes represent the reptile fauna. The number of arthropod species (insects, spiders, crustaceans) is not yet known. Research show La Tirimbina Biological Reserve is home to numerous species of ants, including the formidable bullet ant and the industrious leaf cutter.
