Verry cool Eddy, a lot of excellent shots!

Really enjoyed those Solifugid pictures! The Amblipygid with some yellow around the prosoma is wicked...

Was that first opilione coverred by some mites? Looks like what those red dots are.

He he, nice pseudoscorpion... I think you need higher magnification for these though!

Thanks for sharing those pictures... problem now is I wish I could go back on the field.

How many pictures did you take in total? There must be loads after 5 weeks or so.

Uh, WOW! Beautiful shots of not only some stunning inverts, but achitecture, landscapes, etc.

You also have some very interesting centipedes in there...would you mind if I linked this thread in the Myriapod subforum? Unless, of course, you may be able to shed some light on what they might be?

Thanks for posting. I've been staring at this thread for a couple of hours now:)

Gorgeous!

Hi Eddy excellent shots!!!

Thanks for the pictures of the frog, they are really great, only I need it with me, hahaha!!!

Well, UMA is the name here in Mexico for the places where plants or animals are captive breed, in spanish means Unidad de Manejo para la Conservación de la Vida Silvestre.

We will be in contact Eddy, take care!

Also, was that a worm snake?

Great pics eddy...

But can we rename the thread 'collecting with Eddy Hijmensen?' ... i mean, ChrisH got recognition in another thread in this subforum.

I would like to comment on the picture with the horse-riding, which is particularly artistic. Perhaps more tarantula hunting should be done by horse, much like the glory days of H.H.Smith, etc, but it seems more difficult to spot the burrows from up on a high saddle. (yet this might help explain our lack of finding any species on that particularly fabulous day...)

Very nice thread! I am curious... what made the mogul of dirt in the picture right before the colorful solifugid toward the top of the thread? It looks very similar to what some of our native dwarf aphonopelma do.

I love the salamander pics! Looks like its a type of pseudoeurycea... maybe
P. bellii sierraoccidentalis??? One of my favorite genus of salamander! The amblypygids are top notch as well!!
