Adventures in Snake Tracking

Recently, Robin headed back to Tswalu Kalahari Reserve to meet and train two new researchers who will be tracking telemetered Cape cobras and boomslang for the next few months. Thilo Beck, who will begin his Masters degree at Wits in January, will be co-supervised by Bryan Maritz and Graham Alexander. Assisting Thilo in tracking and collecting data is his partner Mareike Dirnberger. With over 25 implanted snakes to track, they have their hands full!

Read more about their fieldwork so far in a piece they wrote for Tswalu’s blog. Fieldwork at Tsawlu always brings great observations and exciting times!
