Near the waterfall pictured yesterday, I discovered several eggs exposed in the stream bed.  They are no doubt reptilian, but I’m not positive which type.  Given the great abundance of Basilisca vittatum (Jesus Christ Lizard or basilisk) surrounding the stream, the size, and the general lack of turtles, I’d guess they are from a basilisk.  Further, given that the eggs are exposed, they are unlikely to be viable… que triste.

Rio San Pedrillo

Today, Mike and I leave San Jose for Cleveland. We successfully trekked Peninsula de Osa and collected some solid data for Mike’s dissertation at 14 beautiful, tropical streams, the first of which, Rio San Pedrillo, is pictured below.  A great start to a great trip.
