Cayman Critters

Besides the turtle...these guys are Cayman mascots. Stingrays are so tame here at Stingray City that they are more like cats than anything else.

And they said no pets were allowed. Well our Landlord lied to us! Here is the first critter we became acquainted with in Cayman. Mr. Scorpion. We had about 9 of them in total when we lived at SummerField...needless to say after catching them in little zip lock bags and handing them to our Landlord we broke our one year lease about 9 months in and moved to Silver Sands. To date there have been no Scorpions at Silver Sands.

And here is the second critter we discovered. Mr. Crab. Who knew you could find them knocking on your front door wanting to come in. As we later discovered they can even climb walls...kinda like spiders. Only difference is...they taste great! Altough we could never bring ourselves to cook one up...turns out we are restaurant crab eaters.

Oooh....please don't pooh on my head. I really don't have the best luck with birds...but this one was okay. This was taken at Rum Point.

Well here is another guest...come on in! Good thing this wasn't our back door. Who knew Peacock's were so curious...I thought that was cats.

Don't you just hate it when you go to take a nap and an Iguana is in your bed? is our latest guest, Mr. Iguana. Needless to say we were a little shocked to find him, however, once our bounty hunter Casey McDonald arrived on scene, we and by we I mean Casey, were able to catch him and release him into the wild.

And here is the only invited guest in our house...Gussy. Gussy is Anne-Marie and Rob's cat and he comes for many overnight stays when they are off island. This is Gussy's home away from home. As you can see...he is quite comfortable at our place. Although when there is lightning and thunder it is next to impossible to coax him out from underneath the bed of his choice.
