  • 👋It's been a couple weeks since I've posted. What's up in my life?
.
Well I finally left Belize after spending 5 months in the jungle. Researching, teaching, and leading were my everyday tasks. I loved it, but the next step was calling me.
.
If you keep up with my stories, you'll know that i was in Canada for about a week visiting my girlfriend. We hiked near Banff, saw grizzlies crossing the road, and had looooooads of Tim Hortons. This was a perfect spot to unwind and reset before the next step.
.
I flew back to Fort Worth Texas and immediately drove 2.5 hours to meet with old friends for only a moment. Then back North to Waxahachie to visit my grandparents. Then back to ft Worth to pack up all my earthly belongings, before making the 18 hour drive to San Diego.
.
And that's where I've been the past few days. I'm starting my Masters degree at San Diego State University in only a couple weeks, and have been trying to figure out this town. It's so different than what I'm used to, but so far I'm loving it!
.
At the moment, I'm sitting at a new coffee shop waiting for Ikea to open so I can get some furniture. I need to get my records off the floor and a desk built pronto!
.
I know my posts recently have been more blog style updates, but coming soon I have tons of plans 😉 There are hundreds of pics I want to post, hundreds more I plan to take, and loads of videos I'm starting to edit. What do you want to see next?? I'm curious!

  • Last monsoon I had a very special spotting in the rainforests of the Western Ghats - the Tree Toad (Pedostibes sp.) on a tree!
.
Tree frogs are a pretty common sight, and so are toads. But these tree toad are not. These toads climb trees along leaf litter and streams in the forest, hence the name.

The way they 'walk' on the tree branches is so graceful and mesmerizing to watch!

I had to shoot this on my phone; hence the loss of focus at the end. Nevertheless, was an amazing moment to watch live.

Agumbe is a very special place, indeed. On this particular trip, I spotted this guy and also witnessed a Green Vine Snake hunt an Indirana!

  • El Coquí de Hedrick (Eleutherodactylus hedricki) es una especie difícil de observar, no sólo porque su distribución está limitada a montañas altas del interior, sino que también anida en los huecos de las partes altas de troncos. Por suerte este macho estaba cantando en una rama como a poco más de 2 metros del suelo. Se distingue morfológicamente de otros coquíes por ser marrón o gris oscuro, el hocico más redondeado, la piel más berrugosa y el cuello más abultado o ancho. Es una especie en peligro de extinción.

The Hedrick Coquí (Eleutherodactylus hedricki) is a difficult species to observe, not only because its distribution is limited to high mountains in the interior, but also because it nests in high tree trunk concavities. Luckily this male was singing on a branch about 2 meters from the ground. It is morphologically distinguished from other coquis by its dark brown or dark gray coloration, a rounded snout, berrugous skin and  bulky or wide neck. It is an endangered species.

  • O convívio em meio a natureza pode nos trazer inúmeros benefícios, como o alívio do stress, sensação de bem-estar, reduz nossa exposição a poluentes e melhora a saúde mental. 
Além desses benefícios, o contato direto com a natureza nos proporciona registros incríveis de história natural! Antigamente, os relatos de história natural cabiam aos naturalistas, como Langsdorff, Fritz Müller e Bertha Lutz. Hoje em dia tais registros são apresentados, em sua maioria, em formato de notas curtas (short notes) nas revistas científicas. 
Nossa presença constante no mato em busca de descobertas nos recheia de encontros fantásticos. Ontem, publicamos uma nota de história natural relatando a predação de uma serpente (Thamnodynastes hypoconia) em um anuro (Scinax fuscomarginatus). Quer saber mais como e onde isso ocorreu? Acesse nosso site e confira a nota na íntegra! https://goo.gl/s2SYN3
