Guys. I have a confession.
My much talked about trip has arrived and I'm in Panama!
That's not the confession. The confession is that I could not, for the life of me, narrow down my choices for today's Creature Feature (and I'm a day late because work is all-consuming at a field station).
So TA DA THESE ARE THE THINGS I HAVE SEEN SO FAR! I'm here at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute field station in Bocas del Toro and everything I've seen is new and fantastic to me. If it wasn't so hot and humid, I would perhaps never go home. (But it is hot and humid, so don't worry, people that are taking care of my pets while I'm gone, I will definitely be coming home.)
Tree frogs abound!
Literally more geckos than I can swing a bat at!
Seriously my area in Panama is jam packed with creatures I haven't seen before (both terrestrial and marine) and it's been incredible.
I've been trying to identify stuff that I have found here, but to no avail can I find a "Field Guide" for reptiles or amphibians or insects here at the station. Next time I will come more prepared!
So do you lovely readers recognize any of these? I'd love to learn more and have some names to go with my images!
