@Craig and Bayucca: I didn't actually see bats visiting the flowers, I thought I remembered our guide saying that they were bat-pollinated. I could be wrong, it's been a few years!
@Ashish: Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the rest of the tree or branches.
I definitely wasn't a caecilian; caecilian skulls are highly fused and this definitely stretched when it moved. It also had bristles on its underside. I've posted another picture that might show its clitellum, though in the example that I found doesn't it isn't very visible either. I believe it is this: http://clitellata.lifedesks.org/pages/34...
It is not a pet, I was part of a student group and we were on a boat tour of the intertidal area near where we were staying. This guy was in the reeds and our guide pulled him into the boat for us. That arm belongs to the girl who was sitting next to me.
