Update from the Philippines!



Cameron Siler, Katrina Menard, and the OU field crew (Austin Carriere, Elyse Ellsworth, Sierra Smith & Sam Eliades) arrived safely in Manilla on May 22 and had a day or so to explore the city while waiting for collaborators Dr. Duncan Irschick (UMass-Amherst) and Dr. Phillip Bergman (Clark University). They have now wrapped up collecting at their first site in Cayagan Province on Luzon Island and are now traveling to their second collecting locality on Luzon. So far, they have caught close to 250 animals, including MANY species of frogs, a few species of Brachymeles, Draco spilopterus, Ahaetulla prasina, and Chrysopelea paradisi.
