lucastmeers The turtle season is finally here! Last night, we had 57 nests and 123 half moons (false crawls) in just 2.5 miles of beach. Those numbers will continue to rise through August. Disclaimer: This is an old picture - I wasn't on the track survey this morning. 2d

lucastmeers This picture isn't much to look at, but we've been in a torrential downpour for almost 12 hours. I was supposed to work with kids in the town library today, but the library and surrounding area was flooded too. We are in a rainforest during the rainy season, after all. Time to study my Spanish. #tortuguero #costarica #rain 3d

lucastmeers I caught a Bronze-striped Parrot Snake on our track survey this morning. They are rear-fanged, but are considered non venomous. #tortuguero #costarica #snake 5d

lucastmeers A Strawberry Poison Dart Frog. Individuals at higher elevations tend to have blue legs, but along the coast they have less blue (if at all) and more black spots. #tortuguero #costarica 2w

lucastmeers On our way back from our track survey, we found some exposed lizard eggs in the middle of the path. We relocated them to an area nearby (without rotating them, of course). #lizard #eggs #tortuguero #costarica 2w

lucastmeers A cool spider trying to make itself look bigger in the national park this morning. Behind him is a vanilla orchid vine. I picked a few beans to try and cure them to make vanilla extract. We'll see how it goes. I also have a new entry in my blog lucastmeers.wordpress.com #spider #tortuguero #costarica 2w
  •   camijolo WHOA! That's really awesome. 2w
