FIU PhD candidate Michelle Thompson has been working extensively in Costa Rica for several years. James, Alex, and mysel gave Michelle a visit at La Selva Biology Station. We had some great times and solid hikes. Below is a beautiful Phyllobates lugubris, Michelle found us. One of three species of poison frog found at LSBS, and by far the hardest of the three species to find! Thanks Michelle for being a great guide and showing us your field sites!
