In the last episode of the series we stopped at a nice stream with a colony of bats living under the bridge, and found the target species Corydoras metae. The section of the stream we looked at was deep and calm, so in this episode we will take a look at the shallow, swifter section below a rock dam. The most impressive features are beds of Echinodoras sp. sword plants that dominate the habitat. This is the last stop, and the last video, in the Llanos region around Villavicencio. The time has come to head back to Bogota to meet some friends (Vin Kutty, Jeff Cardwell and Eduardo Gomez) to take off for the second week of this adventure exploring the lowland rivers of eastern Colombia.
But you will have to wait a couple weeks…. I am going to take a two week break from publishing Colombia 2016 videos, and Episode 10 will air on Sunday, April 16 (Easter). I am not being lazy. I am traveling again! The destination is Mexico to visit some streams in the central highlands and in the desert around Monterey. I will finally get the chance to visit Quatro Cienegas… one of the places on my bucket list. See you in a few weeks!
