New Trip Report – Guyana

    Nice! But believe me, Karanambu deserves more than a day visit.
    When I was at Iwokrama, local guides claimed that giant armadillos were abundant there. But the only armadillo I saw was a greater long-nosed, and the burrows they showed me seemed way too small. I suspect they misidentified the long-nosed… Has anyone actually seen a giant armadillo there?

    I have to admit I have never really thought of going there, and now I don’t know why. Looking at Rewa’s page it offers 2 of my favorite things: mammals & fly fishing. Definitely one for the list!

      Yes we met a couple of Americans – a biologist and a fly fisherman – working on setting up a sustainable Arapaima fly fishing project there. One hell of a fish!

    Well done, Jon!

    White-faced Saki is one of the coolest neotropical primates!!! Very glad you got to see them, AND the bearded sakis!! Of course a tayra would have been nice, but now it seems they are pretty much guaranteed at Bellavista in Ecuador, where you are surely going to visit to find an olinguito ūüôā And a long-nosed armadillo was a nice bonus.
