In the afternoon, we went on a launch on the Guaritico River. We started by fishing for piranha, which we later ate for dinner. The guides fed some of the piranha to the eagles. We saw lots of birds, a few iguanas, and many many crocodiles -- two species: the Baba ("spectacled caiman") and the big ones (Caiman del Orinoco). The guides captured one of the big ones with a rope noose on a long pole, for the amusement of the younger tourists.
