This brilliant colour is caused by IIV-31 (Isopod Iridescent Virus). I've been checking hundreds of pill bugs over several years for this unusual phenomenon and my persistence finally paid off!
Sadly, this total colour change is usually the later stage of the virus; once a pill bug is this bright it generally doesn't have much longer to live.

A gorgeous girl with a goofy photo at the end ;-) This wild female has been visiting a 'stage' baited with small bits of fresh fish where photographers can wait in silence in a mosquito-y blind for a maximum of two hours to get some not-exactly-100%-candid-but-pretty-darn-awesome shots of a wild ocelot. If she doesn't show (as on the first night), the fish is removed and everyone must leave the area. The last photo shows her intelligence - I was sitting on the end, and noticed her subverting the system by going straight to the unattended fish bucket rather than the more exposed stage area! Hahaha clever girl... the next night the bucket was better guarded. ;-)

After years of trying, I finally got photos of these guys. You can only encounter them in total darkness, with your dive light turned off for at least a minute first. But then they disappear pretty quickly when you turn on a focus light to try to get the photo. I finally discovered that putting my lights on full rather than as dim as possible, the fish was somewhat stunned and stayed in front of me longer, giving me time to get off a few shots.

Dead Oscaecilia ochrocephala found on Pipeline Road. My guess as to cause of death is that a bird found it at the surface and took a bite. The caecilian was soft, so the bird bit clear through, and then the caecilian started squirming and the bird flew away.

ID based on Kohler's Amphibians of Central America (2010). The tentacular foramen is under the nostril (3rd picture), the primary annular groves go completely around the body (4th picture), and there are a few secondary folds on the back part of the body (kinda visible in the 4th picture).
