Miami has 100s of acres of beautiful Natural Areas which lend themselves to research projects! (Quicktime movie~4 mb). On the same walk, I spotted my first garter snake of the spring! In another 1 mb quicktime movie, a pair of mallard ducks lands in Harkers Run in Bachelor Woods

Armored Catfish are relatively unique to South American neotropical lowland streams. They play a key role in the maintenance of the stream ecosystem by recycling sediment and algae. Plenty of research has been done, specifically regarding Costa Rican armored catfish, making it important to the scientific research currently underway in Costa Rica.
