News from the field – the mushroom-tongue salamander

With young toads roaming the streets of Flores at night, I was excited to get to Las Guacamayas to see if the same was true in the forest.

The first night walk proved this to be the case. We found many juvenile toads, both cane toads (Rhinella marinus) and Gulf Coast toads (Incilius valliceps) within the station grounds. Within an hour and a half we had found 4 coffee buy levofloxacin eye drops snakes (Ninia sebae)!!

But, the top find for the night was the first animal we encountered on our way to the forest. Just a few metres from the bedrooms, at the foot of a tree – a juvenile mushroom-tongue salamander (Bolitoglossa mexicana).

What a perfect way to start!!!!
