These stunning Blue and Gold Macaws (Ara ararauna) flew by while I was standing on a tower look-out post in the Peruvian #Amazon rainforest at @losamigosbiologicalstation. .

One of the most spectacular frogs I found in #Madagascar was this Mountain Bright-eyed Frog (Boophis microtympanum) in the mountains of Andringitra National Park.  Stunning green eyes and amazing camouflage to blend in with the alpine mosses and lichen where they live. We camped at this alpine site for several nights and found about a dozen of these beautiful frogs.

A caterpillar getting ready for Halloween, covered in fleshy horns and spines! This will probably turn into a Swallowtail butterfly called the Common Mime (Chilasa clytia). Found during a hike in #HongKong.

Here's another video of an amazing Plasmodial slime mold (Physarum) moving and transforming before your eyes!  It's not an animal...but it moves, communicates, & possibly even learns!  These organisms can live freely as single-celled amoeboid protists, but can swarm together and fuse their cytoplasm to form a huge multicellular network, as pictured here. It pulsates and shares information in response to stimuli, such as "Where's the food? Oh, you tasted it on the left? Also on the right? Ok, let's split and go both ways!". This is a #timelapse video I shot over the course of 3 hours.

Here's a baby Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake that we filmed for National Geographic in a story about snake fungal disease! See the story & video at the link in my profile above! (Or cut and pate this: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/06/snake-fungal-disease-treatment-conservation/)

I found this inquisitive Mossy Red-eyed Frog (Duellmanohyla soralia) at the #HARCC @frogrescue field site in Cusuco National Park, Honduras. This endangered species lives in just a few small pockets of #rainforest near the #Honduras/#Guatemala border.

It's #FridayThe13th! Let's celebrate all the spooky and amazing creepy crawlies out there! The world would be a very scary place without these important animals! Pictured clockwise, starting at top left: male Dobsonfly (Corydalus sp.), Wandering spider (Phoneutria sp.), Saturniid caterpillar (Automeris sp.), Net-casting spider (Deinopis sp.). All of these were found at night in Cusuco National Park, Honduras at the #HARCC @frogrescue field site.

Where do most of the #HARCC frogs live that I post on Instagram?  Right here, in the misty cloud forest of Cusuco National Park in Honduras!

Frog yoga!!! Here's an adult male Spike-thumb #frog (Plectrohyla exquisita) striking a pose at the #HARCC @frogrescue site in Cusuco National Park, #Honduras. Also, do you see the fleshy appendage on his thumb? It actually hides a special bone spike that can be used in territorial combat like a small dagger, hence the name "spike-thumb" frog.

Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay and this year's focus is mental health at work.  Work-life balance is often neglected in many fields of #Science that foster a "publish or perish" atmosphere.  I think most of us (myself included) could benefit by working to improve the ways we cope with stress and time management challenges.  And just as importantly, we need to work together to help break the stereotypical expectation that our lives revolve around work 24/7.  Many people who work in the sciences have a deep passion for what they do, which is great, but that also leaves us vulnerable to mental health issues that can be catalyzed by unhealthy work environments.  Acknowledging this problem is the first step towards working to improve it.  Being outside in #Nature is an escape that helps me recover from the stress, but sometimes I still find it difficult to make the time for myself.
