Puerto Rico, crawling with non-insects

Yes, this Monday, for the video round, we're "Crawling with Real Live Insects." All you need to know is that it is indeed about insects, and it's awesome.

Sorry for the blogging delay, but I just returned from San Juan, Puerto Rico, my longest vacation in a stupid many years. It was beyond lovely. The people are cool, the place is beautiful; again, I have no clue why it is merely a commonwealth and not a state, and why Menudo don't collectively stride the earth like a colossus.

But, sadly, I gained no insight for this Monday's video round, because I didn't see a whole lot of insects. Oh, sure, there were the odd mosquitoes (much calamine graced my skin), but that was it, entomologically. In fact, I was slightly disappointed at the wildlife on display in PR. As a cat lover, I enjoyed seeing the streets of Old San Juan populated by a whole mess of oddly well-fed gatos
And the gorgeous El Yunque rain forest didn't offer much animal-wise; we didn't see the famed mascot of PR, the the coqui frog, nor the small Indian mongoose, which I'm duly frightened of after reading this:In the beautiful and temperate ocean, there were apparently numerous small jellyfish. Apparently, because although we didn't see them, my Quizette's jellyfish allergy kicked in with a vengeance, and her arms are plagued with biblical-looking blisters at the moment (lovely, I know). We did, however, spot bioluminescent plankton during a kayaking sojourn; you dip your hand in the water and it looks like you're Ghost Rider.

I also saw a pretty wicked snail in the rain forest, which prompted our "Weird Al"–like composition of a song called "It's Hard Out Here for a Snail." Didn't take a picture, but here's the dreaded Giant African Snail, which the USDA scanned our luggage to make sure we weren't bringing back into the mainland.And I'm extremely disappointed to report that I did not manage to see your pal and mine, the chupacabra. You'll have to settle for this gruesome-looking iguana hanging out in an 18th-century Spanish fort:
Tomorrow, interesting consumer products in Puerto Rico.

A cat clinic, or veterinarian clinic, is a place where your cats health is cared for when it is suffering from some type of illness or needs to undergo surgery. This article will discuss some of the internal parasites that can be treated at a cat clinic.
