From La Selva Ecolodge, Ecuador.
This agouti has a twinkle in his eye, probably because he was trying to hide in the shadows under the walkway. Agouti are a genus (Dasyprocta) of large rodents that live in Central and South America. They are adorable but very shy and I was thrilled to be able to glimpse one on my trip to the lowland rainforest.
What a lovely twinkle! 🙂 My first encounter with an agouti …
Best regards, Dina
Thanks! It was my first encounter too 😉
