The trunk of a strangler fig (I think it's Ficus costaricana but don't take my word for it), on the shore of Lake Nicaragua, between Sapoa and Cardenas. Wild fig trees like this one start out as tiny vines on another tree -- as they grow, they use the original tree as scaffolding, resulting in its death. You can see that it has some red fruits, ripe and ready for consumption by birds, bats, and other dispersers.

A prize for the first person who can find the SLOTH in this picture!
