You guys are making me more and more thankful I live where I only have to wear
neoprene to keep warm hehheh

Of course, it might just be worth it as I look at the beautiful places and
beautiful animals you're experiencing :)

creepy stuff in that water, lemme tell you. >>

That was my experience last August, also. Afterwards, one of our group viewed
an underwater video that he took while wading showing the Apistogramma
species (bitaeniata) and their use of the leaf litter for cave spawning.
Right there in the picture was an actively swimming Coral snake. On the other
hand, there was one person in our group who did wear waders.
