Agouti / Guatusa: Fauna of Nicaragua

One of the wonderful things about La Mariposa Escuela de Español is that it is surrounded by an incredible garden/forest.   The staff regularly put bananas to attract local fauna and one of the regular visitors is the Agouti, or Guatusa as it is known here.   It is basically a large rodent that is native to Central and South America.

These photos were taken from the where we eat our meals at the school.  I’ve seen one of these the past 3 days running.
