Release party rescheduled for today.

All experiments have at least some minor challenges. We have had one more to deal with. Yesterday we had more than 500 lizards bagged up and sorted into pillow cases labeled with the letter of the island where we plan to release the animals. We loaded the car and started the drive north to where we would pick up our boat. On the way there the owner of the boat rental called to tell us that storms were on the way and it would not be safe for us to take a boat out. We were disappointed, but since we can't control the weather we rescheduled for this morning. As I write this we are driving north to get our boat. The sun is just coming up over the ocean right outside my window.

    Lizards are small & those are pretty big bags. Wouldn't they like attack each other or maybe even mate well in the bags??

  10. So the big bags hold all of the lizards that are going to the same island. The letters don't stand for anything. They are just a way to label the islands.

    Inside of each big bag, the lizards are each in their own plastic bags. We only put a single lizards in each bag to keep them from hurting each other.

    Some of them were in their bags for a week before we released them this morning.
