There’s so much to see at BBG. Of course, there are many interesting trees, plants and flowers. There are also loads of interesting creatures that roam our gardens. Everything from the smallest ants (watch out, they have big teeth!) to tapir. The truth is that you probably won’t see any of the big animals because they tend to be nocturnal and shy.
Little Creatures you might see:
Since Belize Botanic Gardens is organic and has been since it was a farm in 1993, there is a large quantity of small creatures living here. We don’t have too big a problem with insects here; rather their problem is with one another. This is because they are downright cannibalistic! If they’re not eating our plants, they’re eating one another.
Here are a few photos of things we’ve seen on the grounds of BBG.
Not only is it a great place to see plants and other critters, but there
have been more than 300 bird species counted in the area.
Don’t forget to visit when you are in Belize.
