Cubans have a great sense of fun and this graffiti carved on some gourds growing on a tree caused us some amusement too. We saw Monk Skipper Asbolis capucinus and Great Southern White Ascia monuste larvae - surprisingly hard to find considering how common the adults can be. Doug also found two Proteides skipper larvae but wasn't sure which of the two species they were as he didn't recognise the foodplant and hadn't seen it before. Because of this we didn't keep them to rear them through to find out as without the right foodplant they wouldn't survive and we would be on our way further east in a couple of days.
And the sting in the tale? There isn't one apart from that on this rather splendid 50mm scorpion found hiding behind a rock. I don't know if it would hurt as I didn't pick it up to find out.
