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

cheers

Jon

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

    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.

        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.

        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?
