110224 - Costa Rica, Area de Conservacion de Guanacaste (ACG), Volcan Cacao, Arenales

Traps out and bait down at 9am. Gigapan taken uphill from the creek under a fantastic canopy tree. Should be a Pachycondyla visible on the rock of the upstream direction. Temperature was 18-21C all day. Toledo birds singing after 12. 1 Agoti. Large ambulatory ponerinae and Gnaptogenys dominate here. Video of Pachycondyla, fight with bodies cut in half and lost legs, many small black Solenopsis-oids, small Pheidole colony entrance and Gnaptogenys burrowing into obscured colony entrance. 5hrs sampling.

These two Pachycondyla were at my sixth bait station. The altercation did not go well for either of them. www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsXU_QwLIWw Will open in a new tab or window

These tiny Pheidole (the video is 200x) were streaming in and out of this tiny crack to get some butter cookie bait. www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJGh2Yqw2Ng Will open in a new tab or window
These tiny Gnaptogenys were really intent on hiding. www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0aC8tEhsvk Will open in a new tab or window
