hello Pablo

Brownsberg is really good spot for herping. Good thing is that you can go herping around the accomodation on the trails in the park. The manager allowed us to go herping at night. Poisson dart frogs even on the campground are easy to find (phyllobates vittatus). We found them even in the toilets. Around the waterfall there we found mating atelopus.

We first thought we were going to Morocco in May but it looks like we're going to Turkey (Adana area). Might be around the 5th of may to the 12 ou 13th

Thanks for the info Pieter! I will certainly go to Brownsberg. Don't want to miss Atelopus :D
