Today was another exciting and exhausting day! I kayaked and plotted caterpillar sites all day! Whew! Thank you for all of your comments and I hope you keep up with my post! Most of you seem to be interested in the 15 foot alligator named El Guapo. You couldn't really see him except for his eyes and tail sticking out of the water... I have to say, it was a little scary. One of my leaders/teachers here (Mark) told me that the locals call him that name; I don't know why though, I guess it's because he's the biggest in the river. When tourists come to Pearl River, the guides feed the alligators marshmallows. Apparently they really like them... who knew!
This is our fearless leader Rebecca.
This is her second in command, Mark.
This is the great and powerful Mike.
This is someone examining a caterpillar using a microscope.
Did anyone figure out what the caterpillars on the previous post pupate/turn into?
If you do, let me know!
