Default Cusuco National Park, Honduras

I spent two weeks in Cusuco National Park with Honduras this summer as a research assistant to Operation Wallacea. This coming summer I get to return to conduct my own herpetological surveys for two months which is incredibly exciting. Here are some pics from my previous trip. Unfortunately it rained excessively which greatly limited the amount of species we saw. Next year expect a ton more.
