After the big shootout where the Predator gets wounded, his blood is on the leaves. Yet, not even Billy saw the big, flourescent green thing shining. "No blood, no bodies, we hit nothing" but it's right in front of them. Anna saw it, so how the hell did the team miss it?

On a side note, right after that, Dutch orders Mac to set up claymores around, knowing well he was close to Blain. A bit of dick move from Dutch? Show a little compassion, have someone else place the mines. He even has him do the first watch. Scumbag Dutch.

Dutch was trying to get Mac over the loss of Blain so it wouldn't effect the squad.

They were looking for human blood.

Dutch tried to get Mac occupied and not deal with burying Blaine. He's also going to be the most on edge so exactly the person you want on watch.

This. At the end of the day, that's not something they would be looking for. Depending on how tunnel visioned they were looking for human blood, probably just went right past their notice.

It was green blood on green leafs in green jungle. It`s quite possible they didn`t notice the difference, while Anna native to this forest did.

But Billy finds invisible tracks, shell cases, footprints. Not like him to miss this.

There's no saying he didn't notice it and just not tell anyone. He was acting out of character according to the team, so maybe that was part of it.

Yeah he was the first one with Anna to kinda sense what was going on, so maybe he did.

The bright neon green glow-stick goo should've been easily spotted.

The most likely reason they failed to notice it was because the script said they wouldn't.

It never occurred to me that they somehow missed the glowing green blood, especially the expert tracker.

If anything, I'm surprised that even Anna didn't bring this to attention EARLIER, or even notice the glowing green blood on her leg that she wiped herself on with. She told them about it, after deciding to make a stand against the Predator and getting yelled at by the guys. Would have helped a whole lot so that they have visual idea to look out for. 

Not to mention.....since Thermal vision makes non heat based objects blend in together, how does even the Predator notice the traps laid around the camp?

Local legend. She knows something about what it is. Maybe she figures she'll be safe if she just keeps quiet and let's El Diablo Que Hace Trofeos De Los Hombres take her captors. Then she can go home.

They were still her captors for a large portion of that. IIRC she doesn't really get into it until Dutch cuts her loose.

The Team are not from the area to them it could have been so sort of tree sap for all they knew after they destroyed 1/4 of the jungle, Anne is native to the area so it stands to reason she would pick up what looks out of place with regards to the plant life. The team was also more interested in the immediate threat.
