    What a paradise, in more ways than one. Absolutely stunning images, creatures and landscape.

    I cant begin to tell you how jealous I am. :worship:

    I just say "Viva la France" and all is good ;)
    Speaking of FG, I once suggested to a friend that he joined the french foreign legion and get stationed in FG so he could send me some animals.. He didnt like that idea much

    Hi Guys,

    I see you stayed at Joep's. How are Joep, Marijka and Bernie? I collected 10 species of tarantulas in Joep's "backyard".

    You can see photos (not to clear though) from my last trip to FG on our website scorpion.amnh.org under the fieldwork link.

    Yeah we didn't find any centipede this time :eek:

    We didn't find many things in Joep's forest. The family seems to go well :)

    getting slowly prepared for FG myself...

    About that Phoneutria protecting her sac: most likely (once again) P. reidyi.

    After checking next to all ressources of pictures of Phoneutria from FG most of many proved to be P. reidyi, which is the same for Peru... :mad:

    I really wonder where those P. fera are gone?

    Excellent pics really nice to see those wonderful animals in their natural enviroment. That skeleton tarantula is absolutely beautiful. What kind of spider was the one with the jelly looking eggs was it some kind of daddy long legs. Those black ants where they in mounds or was they nomadic?

    The ants are nomads

    The green thing, at first I thought it might be one, but now I do not think it was an opilionid, looks more like a spider.

    Take care

    The big black ant looks like Dinoponera, The smaller reddish ants are Ectatomma ruidum near as I can tell. Of course the ant with leaf is an Atta species.
