#1: Ecuador, Episode 1! . . . . . . We travel to the incredible Choco! Reptiles and Amphibians!
Published: 15 January 2019

"The team travels to Ecuador in search of Reptiles and Amphibians. Field herping in this beautiful country has to be a bucket list item on every herpers list! The tree frogs here alone make it worth it, not to mention the snakes and lizards!

"Thanks to the Tropical Herping guys and the Canande Lodge staff!

"The Ecuadorian Choco is a quickly vanishing tract of lowland tropical rainforest stretching from Southern Panama down to Western Ecuador. It is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet and is threatened by intense logging activities and palm oil plantations. Please consider contributing to the front lines of the battle to save this incredible area by following this link.

"Thanks for watching! :)"
