    owl butterfly

    we found this place after leaving the mayan ruins of labaantun .it was on the same road.we drove up a side road (4wheel drive needed)which went up all the way .and looked like it would dead end at anytime but finnally made it to the fallenstones hotel .the hotel was for sale at the time and not in operation but the butterfly farm is . a guide gave us a tour of the grounds and there are some good views from the hotel .you can see the highest point in belize from here i don't know what the name is but it is 13 feet higher than victoria peak,which was thought to be the highest.the butterfly farm is small and it dosn't take a long time to see but they let you inside there breeding area and you get covered with blue morpho butterflies it is a good place for photos .

    Black Howler Monkey

    Black Howler Monkey - affectionately called 'baboons' by the locals. Within an area of 20 square miles, the Community Baboon Sanctuary combines dense jungle with farmland, and small village life. The Black Howler Monkey is the largest monkey in the Americas, found only in a small section of Central America. The total howler monkey population within the sanctuary is about equal to that of the humans-at 1000-1500 each! Here you will also sight numerous birds and other wildlife.
