The hunt is now listed on Hunt SL

It is summer in Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador and other areas in South America. February and March are also the hottest months in Kenya, Uganda, Somalia, The Republic of the Congo, and Democratic Republic of the Congo. Indonesia is a tropical temperature area year round.

Your item in the hunt has to have something to do with life on the equator.

Places on the Equator experience the quickest rates of sunrise and sunset in the world. br> They are also the only places in the world where the sun can go directly from the zenith to the nadir and from the nadir to the zenith.
Such places also have a theoretical constant 12 hours of day and night throughout the year, though in practice, there are variations of a few minutes due to the effects of atmospheric refraction and because sunrise and sunset are measured from the time that the edge of the Sun's disk is on the horizon, rather than the center of the disk.
The Earth bulges slightly at the Equator. It has an average diameter of 12,750 kilometres (7,922 mi), but at the Equator the diameter is approximately 43 kilometres (27 mi) greater than the polar diameter.

The equator passes through 13 countries: Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, Sao Tome & Principe, Gabon, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, Maldives, Indonesia and Kiribati.

Northern Brazil temperature 25C or 77F Humid Equatorial (Convergence of the Trade winds) Tropical (dry Winter and humid Summer)
