The meeting with the traveler – Szymon Przebinda, is organized on Friday, December 1, 2023, at Branch No. 1 of the Municipal Public Library at 9 Osiedlowa Street in Radom. It starts at 5 PM. Free admission! The theme of the meeting will be the Exploration of the Caves of Northern Laos – Searching for New Species of Spiders. The caves of northern Laos hide many natural surprises. Invertebrates inhabiting these caves are often unknown to science. We went to Laos in search of new spider species. I will tell you about the adventures during this expedition at the meeting on Friday, December 1, 2023, at the library in Ustronie Estate in Radom – announces the 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 heat was scorching, with high humidity in the air, and only after entering the cave could we rest a bit from the heat. Various creatures were hiding in its corners, for example, spider-hunting wasps from the Pepsis genus. Small invertebrates with numerous agile legs were our target of search – recalls the traveler.
In the caves, we ventured quite deep at times. The further into the cave, the less life we found. After leaving the caves, we had to return through the tropical forest in the dark. It was then that the tropics came to life. Snakes, centipedes, spiders, scorpions, lizards, monkeys, and mosquitoes searched for their prey. It was unknown what lay behind the next tree. Sometimes, we only set out on the search after dusk – Szymon Przebinda talks about the expedition.
During the meeting, original merchandise from Mongolia, Morocco, and Turkey will also be available for purchase.
