Caterpillar in Belize

Found this little guy in the house today, didn’t want him to get stepped on so tried to move it outside. I got my piece of paper and tried to slide the caterpillar on to it, but as soon as  I touched it the thing twitched and jumped.

Still not sure what to call him, tried looking for info online but couldn’t find anything. So if anyone can help identify him.

Stingless Bees in Belize

Saw these little things making the most amazing funnel shaped nest. Of course I didn’t want to get to close because I didn’t want to get stung. After speaking to one of the gardeners he told me that they are actually bees and have no sting. Their proper name is Tetragonisca anugustula, apparently they make amazing honey, the only problem is they are really small so the amount of honey they make is a really little, in a year they can make up to 1kg of honey.
