It was a pitch-black, hot, and humid night in the Cockscomb Basin of Belize, we had just finished dinner. The lodge did not have lights outside the rooms for some reason. Fortunately we used the Petzl headlamp to aid in inserting the key into the door lock. Good thing, because this is what was ON THE DOORKNOB! He reared up his tail in alarm, but we jumped back quickly and averted that disaster. I love it when things go right.
