Scouting for Toads in Panama

We arrived in Panama early Friday morning, around 2am. We decided to stay in the city that night, and drive out to Gamboa (about an hour away) in the afternoon. Friday night we spent time looking for cane toads and other frogs, and introducing Sally, our new field assistant, to Panamanian wildlife. I was able to find 2 toads that were the right size for me - I've got them in plastic containers under the staircase, and am going out to find more tonight!

I'll post pictures tomorrow or the next day, along with the welcome video for the website. For now, I need to go and get ready for more fieldwork! :)

Has it rained where you live lately? Have you heard any frogs calling?
