Weird dreams filled with strange fauna last night, some of it positively Seussian.
The most interesting were these little critters, about the size and shape of pudgy, plush-bottomed woodchucks, only with curling tusks like wooly mammoths. They lived in colonies like prairie dogs, and the females would gather these balls of nesting material, rolling them along like big tumbleweeds with their noses. My guide demonstrated that these were not the brightest animals in the bestiary, and if you got down on your hands and knees and pushed a tumbleweed along in front of you, they didn't pay you any mind at all and you could get right up among 'em.
Later, we were crossing a river by jumping from one slumbering, mud-covered, school-bus-sized crocodile to another.
Lots of giant caves, each with their own ecosystem, including one containing a giant tiger. We didn't go in that one.
