Bugs and Life: Central America

In China, it was rare to see any bugs, never mind any wildlife: it was as if they had all been vacuumed up and eaten. Hmm... Central America was the opposite. Despite widespread deforestation for the (asinine) ranching of cattle, the region was full of cool bugs and critters. The climate is so moist and diverse that grass even grows thick on the overhead power lines.
