July marks the fourth month that I have been on co-op with the Langkilde Lab. It’s hard to believe that it’s gone by this fast! It seems like just yesterday I was working with Lindsey, Jenny, and Brad (PhD candidates who work in PA) on their wood frog projects back in Pennsylvania. It’s been a lot of fun so far and I expect the last month and a half to be no different.

Here are some cool things I have gotten to do so far while working here (besides herping):

  • Submitted two distribution notes to Herpetological Review (a third is on the way)
  • Submitted a natural history note (an envenomation note) to Herpetological Review
  • Visited the Auburn University Museum herp collection with Sean and met his PhD advisor, Dr. Craig Guyer
  • Tracked indigo snakes with Jimmy Stiles as part of his radio telemetry project
  • Currently working on a paper with Brad involving tadpole behavior
  • Currently working on an independent research project

In other news, we have adopted another intern who will be working with us down in Alabama until September. His name is George and he is an undergraduate zoology student from England who wanted to come to the U.S. to work with Sean and learn about herps (what was he thinking??? Haha just kidding!). Welcome aboard, George 🙂
