We've been running a camera trap (or trail camera, if you prefer) on one of the paths at Checo Hill for the best part of a year now. After some adventures with dodgy connections in the battery compartment (amongst other things...) we've finally caught something other than ourselves and the dogs on camera!

The camera recorded a nine-banded armadillo the other night - just after 2:00am - just up the hill behind our house. This accounts for the noisy wee creature we've been hearing about the place of late.

(The kinkajous are back again, too: hanging out in the yaxnik trees on the hill... First time since the hurricane.)
