I have always loved animals and I knew there was amazing biodiversity in the world, but getting to experience it first hand was such an incredible experience! On an almost daily basis, I would exclaim "Oh my goodness!" out of shock and excitement at what incredible things I had stumbled upon in the jungle! I have been recording videos throughout our whole trip, and you can see them on my Youtube channel below.
