A delicate balance
This mangrove swamp on the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic protects the island and its wildlife from the havoc of its frequent hurricanes. They call this red mangrove, one of many kinds, though I couldn't see that the roots looked red. There are no dangerous or poisonous animals on this island--maybe the hurricanes provide enough fear.
