Back from another amazing 4-weeks Costa Rica trip with many specialists on insects and arachnids. Most of them have already been to Costa Rica the last years. It seems like they just can't get enough beeing stung by moskitos, ticks, horse-flies, no-see-ums, not enough of sweating, of getting wet and dirty all the time! Just like it should be!

This years highlights were close encounters with a few Tapirus bairdii (Baird's Tapir, Mittelamerikanischer Tapir), Bradypus variegatus (Three-toed Sloth, Dreifingerfaultier), Eira barbara (Tayra, Tolomuco), Dasypus novencimctus (nine-banded Armadillo, Neunbindengürteltier), Tamadua mexicana (Northern Tamadua, Kleiner Ameisenbär), Ara ambigua (Great Green Macaws, Soldatenara), Sarcoramphus papa (King Vulture, Königsgeier), Pharomachrus mocinno (Quetzal), Calocitta formosa (White throated Magpie-Jay, Langschwanzhäher), Cyanerpes cyaneus (Red-legged Honeycreeper, Türkisnachvogel), Basiliscus plumifrons (Stirnlappenbasilisk), Diploglossus monotropis (Schleiche), Micrurus nigrocinctus (Korallenschlange), Sibon nebulatus (Caracolera comun), Hyla rufitela (Scarlet-webbed Tree Frog) and many never seen spectacular arachnids and insects! 

This years participants were (in alphabetical order): Ali Komposch, Brigitte Komposch, Brunhilde Kunz, Christian Komposch, Dagmar Schwischay, Erwin Holzer, Eva Líznarová, Gerhard Weber, Helmuth Schwischay, Jaqueline Jereney, Johannes Gepp, Katharina Gesslbauer, Katharina Weber, Lenka Setenska, Leo Kuzmits, Luisa Fernanda Trivino Cely, Melitta Fuchs, Richard Kunz, Stephanie Kordon, Susanne Dolezal and Wolfgang Windisch.
