Ticos of the Week

The Ticos (Costa Ricans) of the week are the scary river crocodile above and the picnic peacock, below. Runner up is the Roseate spoonbill, though I think it could have been more roseate, don't you?The fruit of the week is what I call sour Tico strawberry apple. Called "Cas band" on the package, yet not on google.
The inefficient nut of the week is the cashew, which grows like this (green part is the nut). You didn't know? This blog can be educational.
