Os morcegos brancos hondurenhos vivem em pequenos grupos escondidos debaixo de grandes folhas de helicónia, as quais costumam dobrar em forma de tenda para se protegerem da chuva e dos predadores.

O pequeno grupo da imagem foi encontrado numa enorme folha a cerca de um metro do solo no interior da densa floresta húmida de Braulio Carrillo .

Copán, Honduras, 2012.

 

Copán is an archaeological site of the Maya civilization located in the Copán Department of western Honduras, not far from the border with Guatemala. It was the capital city of a major Classic period kingdom from the 5th to 9th centuries AD. The city was located in the extreme southeast of the Mesoamericancultural region, on the frontier with the Isthmo-Colombian cultural region, and was almost surrounded by non-Maya peoples.

I am working on my previous trips and books so I will be uploading some that are not already in the sets.. From Honduras, Copan Ruins.

 

In the center of the museum is a true scale replica of the temple nicknamed "Rosalila". Modern artisans have made highly accurate reconstruction's of the elaborate colored stucco relief’s that adorned the Rosalila. The temple, discovered in nearly perfect condition, by archaeologist in 1991, it was dedicated by Copan's tenth ruler, "Moon Jaguar," in the years 571 AD. As a whole the temple represents a mountain, a place of creation, a source of life-giving water and the sacred maize plant.

 

The Sun God, a key player in the creation myth, rises majestically on the top with his wings outstretched across the building. The birds on the lower part of the building are representations of the first ruler and founder of the Copan dynasty, whose hieroglyphic name reads "K'inich Yax K'uk' Mo' " (Sun-faced blue-green Quetzal Macaw'). On the upper story, serpents stream forth like smoke from a enormous incensario with a skeletal face, they overlap the giant image of the mountain deity.

 

Rosalila was so sacred that it was left intact, even with its roof.

Honduras, officially the Republic of Honduras (República de Honduras), is a republic in Central America. It was at times referred to as Spanish Honduras to differentiate it from British Honduras, which became the modern-day state of Belize.

 

The country is bordered to the west by Guatemala, to the southwest by El Salvador, to the southeast by Nicaragua, to the south by the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Fonseca, and to the north by the Gulf of Honduras, a large inlet of the Caribbean Sea.

 

Honduras was home to several important indigenous cultures, most notably the Maya. Much of the country was conquered by Spain which introduced its now predominant language and many of its customs in the sixteenth century. It became independent in 1821 and has been a republic since the end of Spanish rule.

 

The area of Honduras is about 112,492 km² and the population exceeds eight million. Its northern portions are part of the Western Caribbean Zone. Honduras is most notable for production of minerals, coffee, tropical fruit, sugar cane and recently for exporting clothing to the international market.
