Hi, Kelly! Do you still do field work with Jesus? Please, i hope you don't take this question has a privacy invasion...

I ask because your anaconda work in the Llanos is quite famous. But i would love to see you involved in a similar project in the jungles of Asia, to observe and catalog subpecies (some still unknown) of the longest snake alive, the retic. Don't you think that would be an exciting project? I feel retics are seen as "domestic" pets, and we know more about them from this hobby than from serious field science. How well do they reproduce in nature? What natural selection rules are working for them, since they have no predators? Just exactly how big do they really grow in deep regions of the forest? Where ends the myth and starts the truth, about the most beautiful of the large giants?

Please Kelly, this is work waiting to be done... by the best
