After an evening of reviewing records of the first day our herpetologists confirm a new amphibian record for the park – Hypsiboas marianitae. Similarly, the ichthyologists find a suckermouth catfish (Astroblepus sp.) that is also a new park record. The bat team brings in five species in one night including the famous vampire bat (Desmodus rotundus).
