Mauritius didn't surprise us with its wildlife as much as we probably expected. It's a green and nice island overall but you won't find monkeys on the trees or lots of tropical fruit all over. Here's what we saw there:
a huge spider (but only one!) Somebody told us there weren't any big spiders in Mauritius. Maybe they are rare. It was kind of neat to see, but we were glad this was the only big spider we saw. We should have put something in for scale -- it's about as big as a person's palm.
Pretty cool things. I wish we had seen bunnies :-)
