130324 - Costa Rica, Area de Conservacion de Guanacaste (ACG), Volcan Cacao, 1300m

Cacao 1300
10.93032 -85.4616 1304

A warm, hot, completely still day. The site is dominated by Gnaptogenys. I drove up with Manuel and Dunia and had the traps out by 9:30. 42x20 GigaPan at same spot as 121203. Say a tolomuco (Eira barbara) while sifting - it was very curious! Spider and capuchin monkeys around. Tiny toad under a turned stone, mp3 made while sifting. Downloaded temp gauge at 1pm. Seemed to be termites here. Saw a jaguar below rancho harold on the descent - photo of tracks (bit.ly/10tRl8G Will open in a new tab or window)
