Earlier this month a co-worker and I had the opportunity to head south to Belize with a few of our supervisors. In partnership with the Lamanai Outpost Lodge, located in the Orange Walk District of Belize, my boss has developed a crocodile encounter tourist activity. At night tourists are offered the opportunity to join us on our trips to catch Morelet's crocodiles- fun for everyone!
While not out at night catching crocodiles my friend and I spent the entire week searching the nearby forests and Mayan ruins for any wildlife we could catch sight of. Our specific goal was to find and photograph at least 30 reptile and amphibian species. After many many long hours in the field, both day and night, we eventually reached and surpassed our goal. To view a field guide we made from our finds check out the following link:http://crocdoc.ifas.ufl.edu/publications/pamphlets/Lamanai%20Herp%20Guide.pdf
