I’ve just read through this month’s presentation of HoH…twice. Lynda, a field biologist studying mongoose (mongooses, mongeese?) in South Africa, has taken the helm of the HoH ship, and has set a course around the world. On this voyage, we will learn about the ways in which different human cultures have incorporated amphibians and reptiles into their rain-making rituals. Water is the lifeblood of the planet, so it is fascinating to learn about the role of herps in our wide-ranging techniques for coaxing water to fall from the skies. I know you will love HoH #11 at Mainly Mongoose!
Next month, House of Herps will travel to Adrian Thysse’s blog, A Natural Evolution. As the field-herping season draws to a close, HoH #12 is bound to be a great one.
If all of this excitement has you feeling like you are ready to host your first (or another) edition of HoH, please let us know! Submissions are due by November 15th.
