Well, I just can't stand it lol....if you all are
going to talk about Costa Rica and Panama and then
have the gall to mention Rivulus, which I like even
more than native fish if truth be told, then I am
going to have to dig out my Amazon notes, slides, dust
them off and put together my recollections with
pictures. There is even a Piranha story.

Did you all get over into Panama and find any Rivulus
uroflammeus or u. siegfriedi? I like the highland
form the best. Panama is much better for Rivulus

Give me a couple of weeks to get it together. Right
now I am working on two PPT presentations on Fundulus
and Collecting Natives and I am trying to learn
powerpoint as I go, so its a bit slow going. I have
to give two talks after Thanksgiving and have two more
scheduled in winter. Look for the travelogue sometime
after thanksgiving and before christmas.
