    Are there polecats (ferrets) on Cuba? Not saying there aren’t but I hadn’t heard they had been introduced there. Was it definitely a ferret and not a mongoose?

    I identified those bats at La Guira as Mexican freetails (Tadarida brasiliensis) based on lips wrinkled and ears not joined at the base.

    Also, I don’t think you have Cuban flower bat on the photo; they are all Jamaican fruit bats. Facial stripes can be highly variable.

    And the crab on the photo is purple land crab, Gecarcinus ruricola.
