New Trip Report: Nicaragua

I was in Nicaragua last month on a week long mammal bonanza.  A record breaking trip for me I think in terms of diversity with 86 species (plus one that might be an 87th and might even be new to science).  Thank you Jose Gabriel!

Nicaragua, 2016: 8 nights & 86 species including TayraSpotted Hog-nosed SkunkSpectral BatMexican Dog-faced Bat and many more.

A report from my trip to Panama last week will follow soon

    This is amazing. Nicaragua is now with Mexico, DRC, Kazakhstan, and Mongolia at the top of my list 🙂

      Glad to hear it …. it is a great country and Jose Gabriel is such a good guy to spend time in the field with

    So boring… All bats look the same. I can’t wait to move to New Jersey, get back to Great Swamp and get a better photo of New Jersey’s most exciting mammal, the woodland vole.

      I haven’t seen a Woodland Vole yet!

        Since we’ll soon be neighbors, I can simply give you a call when I catch one. I still hope that there will be some natural habitats within six hours’ drive from my new home.

          Sounds like a good plan. And please cabn I order a Fisher too… and Long-tailed, Pygmy, Least and Smoky Shrews, Meadow Jumping Mouse (really!), all the moles… 🙂

      • vdinets 6 years ago

        OK, I’ll put you on my speed dial 😉

        By the way, what happened to that plan of hiring a boat on Long Island to go to submarine canyons and look for beaked whales?
