French Guyana - January 2014

Postby Matthieu Berroneau » Sun Feb 16, 2014 12:49 pm

Hello Everybody.

We just came back from 3 weeks in French Guiana. Here is a short account of our observations. Obviously I have to sort through the pictures, because it would take too long integrated whole.
Fanstastic places, but the time is too short, and we'll have to return !! Big thanks for all friends who help us there, it was really a great experience.

Amazing pictures :!: Corallus caninus is its biotop is awesome, the Pipa pipa is a surrealist species, and the rest is great as well. I look forward reading the remaining parts. Too bad for the durissus, it's quite a challenge to find them indeed. Did you stay always near the coast or could you also enter deeper in the forest?

@ Guillaume.
Yes, Crotalus durissus seems now very very rare... like its habitat :-(
No, we don't only prospect near the coast, but also in deep forest (see above, part two).

I love the second photo in the rain (Rhinella aff. martyi). The Atelopus flavescens has very beautiful coloration :)

You had a great trip :D
