Things that Go "Bump" in th Night: The Tropical Rainforests after Dark

SPEAKER: William W. Lamar, Zoologist, Adjunct Professor of Biology, University of Texas at Tyler and Founder of GreenTracks Tour Co., Inc.

The only efficient way to find reptiles and amphibians, and most other creatures in the tropics, is to hunt them after dark. For some reason, that is a daunting task but the truth of the matter is that it is fascinating and fun. Still, there are hazards to consider, and in doing this we can put them into their place and better embrace  the remarkable opportunity offered by a stroll through rainforest under cover of darkness. Let's take a virtual tour of the tropics by night and see the surprises that a flashlight reveals!
