You'll be happy to know that apparently they were hunting a giant squid (I asked my driver what "gurita" is. He also watches the cryptozoology show), NOT a giant burrito.

giant squid--almost as delicious as a giant burrito, and much more intelligent.

I heard tell yesterday of "singing worms" in Papua New Guinea. (I heard this in an article in Outside magazine that, while informative, made me shake my head at the survival of the Strong White Man Does Stuff narrative: guys wanted to follow a trail across PNG that WWII soldiers had taken; they hire local guides and then are astounded that the local guides are faster and stronger than they are, in spite of being smaller and thinner. Plus, they characterize the people in an inaccessible mountain village as talking "broken English," and I'm thinking, Dude, how much of the local language do you know?) Further investigation wouldn't give me any more information ("singing worms" as a search term on Google is unhelpful), except one statement that the theoretical singing worms were actually frogs... which makes sense, but is disappointing.
