It starts at 5:00 p.m. Free admission! The topic of the meeting will be Exploring the Caves of Northern Laos – Searching for New Species of Spiders. The caves of northern Laos hide many natural surprises. The invertebrates inhabiting these caves are often unknown to science. We went to Laos to search for new spider species. I will tell you about the adventures during this expedition at the meeting on Friday, December 1, 2023, at the library at Osiedlowa Street in Radom – announces traveler Szymon Przebinda.
With a backpack on our backs, we had to enter the tropical forest, sometimes pushing through it to reach a forgotten cave. The sun was scorching, the humidity was high, and it was only after entering the cave that we could rest a bit from the heat. Various creatures were hiding in their nooks and crannies, such as hunting wasps of the Pepsis genus. Small invertebrates, quickly moving with numerous legs, were the goal of our search – recalls the traveler.
In the caves, we ventured quite deep sometimes. The deeper into the cave, the less life we found. After leaving the caves, we had to make our way back through the tropical forest in the dark. It was then that the tropics came alive. Snakes, centipedes, spiders, scorpions, lizards, monkeys, and mosquitoes went hunting, looking for their hosts. It was unknown what was hiding behind the next tree. Sometimes, we only set out on our search after dusk – Szymon Przebinda tells about the expedition.
During the meeting, original goods from Mongolia, Morocco, and Turkey will also be available for purchase.
