Well... that's what it looked like! It could have been two things?
In the end, I realized that it was this tree that was shedding her seeds.
Utilians used to make pillows out of this very soft and fluffy fur. The tufts allow the seeds to be taken far from the tree to plant her seeds and propagate.
I am not a botanist. However, I have just contacted a botanist who discovered an endemic species here in Utila, and asked her to help me identify the tree species.
Enjoy! (Leave a comment if you know the species please!)
