"Stinky turkeys"" as the locals call them. In the rainforest in Ecuador a few years ago. We were on a boat on the river, part of a visit to an ecolodge.

el Chupacabra! el Chupacabra! :-D:-D:-D

Those are definitely weird looking, I have never seen or heard of these before.
You got a good shot of them too!
I need to look them up, they are VERY interesting, they make our Anhingas look tame and pretty! heheh

I never heard of them either until that day!! The locals of course see them all the time. They are apparently a taxonomic mystery. We saw toucans and aracaris (multiple species), and multiple parrot species on that trip.Those I recognized (I'm a parrot guy but am learning everything else almost from scratch). And some primates as well as some interesting insects, arachnids, frogs, snakes, etc. . And I caught a piranha on a hand line. Crazy fun trip.

Here's another one.
