All about Herpetology Workshop

Our friend Raby is a young researcher and guide who has a deep passion for reptiles and amphibians. He will share his extensive knowledge about the natural history and ecology of snakes and frogs as well as his significant contributions to the scientific world.

Raby will explain the unique characteristics, ecology, reproductive habits, predation, and interactions of frogs and snakes found in the Osa Peninsula.

After meeting at Las Vegas Restaurant, you will head towards the frog trail, and start a thrilling rainforest tour at night. In the darkness of the tropics, you will explore the area in search of herpetofauna.
