TOUR: HERPETOLOGICAL NIGHT TOURS THROUGHOUT COSTA RICA
Since most reptiles and amphibians are nocturnal, walking the forest at night has far better results than during the day. It is not uncommon to see several different species snakes on a single night tour. Glass Frogs, Tree Frogs, Poison Dart Frogs and Toads are usually seen in high volume. Other amphibians such as Salamanders and Caecilians can be encountered at night too. The forests in Costa Rica also yield some very interesting insects and arachnids, which are any entomologist's dream. Gary has come to know all the "herping hot spots" in the area well and will be your expert private guide through these high density zones.
