Trip to French Guiana

guyanatheris-197This winter, we planned an herpetological trip to French Guiana, where we have some good friends. French Guiana is a perfect destination for prospecting in the Amazon rainforest.
The three weeks were dedicated to the visit of several remarkable sites, to the west, to the east, and to the center of the country. The surveys have allowed us to make many remarkable observations, for example the Emerald Tree Boa Corallus caninus or the two species of the genus Pipa… Finally more than 140 species!
Above all, this trip made possible the meeting of such friendly people… thanks to all of them!
