It was a typical stormy rainy season
night. Heavy rain, lightning, and thunder.
I had just finished a rum and water, and was curled up in my hammock on the
reading Jurassic Park by kerosene lantern light. What an appropriate setting
for reading this book!
An hour or so passed and I was deep into the book. The velociraptors were attacking
and about to break in...
when suddenly, just behind
me there was a terrible agonizing death
I gathered my shaken senses and a flashlight and caught a quick glimpse of
a nightwalker (kinkajou -Potos flavus), the "banshee of the rain forest
which had apparently just made a meal of one of my pet bats!
Now, that was an unforgettable set of circumstances.
