Kala and the Frog

Kala

Kala detail

I haven't blogged in a little bit.

This is Kala.

I spent a few days on the south coast of Trinidad and witnessed something that probably happens quite often during the rainy season, but I found it amazing. This little creature and several others, including spiders and grasshoppers, washed up on the beach there on what looked like a clump of floating bush. People say it came from either Venezuela or Guyana. Either way, I thought it fantastic the way wildlife moves from place to place. This frog came to be in my hands after I found it on the sand in scorching midday sun. I dropped some fresh water on it and it hopped on my arm and spent a while hiding from the sun in my hands. I found a nice shady, moist spot near a stream for it later. I'm not at all fond of spiders so I left them well alone.
