Nocturnal neighbors

At night you can see many animals right next to our station. Especially when it rains, there is a lot of "traffic" around our ponds. I took the following pictures within a 5 minute walking distance to my room.
Still at the building this Turnip-tail Gecko (Thecadactylus rapicauda) was looking for food. With approx. (12cm, 4.7 in) it is the biggest Gecko of Costa Rica.

The Northern Cat-eyed Snake (Leptodeira septentrionalis) is abudant near the ponds here.

As well as the Hourglass Treefrog (Dendropsophus ebraccatus) and the famous Red-eyed Treefrog (Agalychnis callidryas)

I also saw some Plain Blunt-headed Tree Snakes (Imantodes inornatus).

I look forward to the next observations. I am still waiting for a Boa...
