Day 8

Research Log
Day off today. Five days on, two days off. Went into Tortugero, and met an old station manager for coffee. Then we wandered around and went swimming in the ocean before lunch. Erica and I have become honorary members of the San Francisco women's soccer team. We had another game today. We held on pretty well until our 4-2-2-2 formation fell apart. Lots of fun though. A group university group from Ontario arrived today and will be here all week.

Animal of the Day
Brazilian long-nosed bats - Rhynchonycteris naso.
These bats sleep all day by the dock, and are specialized in attracting tourists on early morning tours.

  1. Congrats on the honorary membership. You know you'll have to go back each season ; Try the 'all chase the ball at once' formation next time..ha ha
    Love the bats, sadly they have 'the face only a mother could love'. Hope the tourists dont disturb them too much. Take care, Dad
