Guatemala Herping Expedition

About the Event
Explore the herpetological secrets of the ancient Mayan country of Guatemala
Guatemala is not only quetzals, beautiful lakes and volcanoes; it was part of the ancient Maya territory. In this beautiful and little explored country, we will explore Caribbean rain and cloud forests, as well as one Pacific locality. Our goals are endemic delicacies like the yellow blotched palm viper (Bothriechis aurifer), the Zacapa beaded monster (Heloderma charlesbogerti) and the beautiful salamanders of the genus Bolitoglossa. Submerging Guatemalan idiosyncrasy to reach the most undisclosed herps will be our goal there.
