I’ve waited for more than 6 months to be able to participate in this expedition in the drainages of the Paraiba River , near Lidice RJ ; approximately 30km from Angra dos Reis. Details agreed , bags ( Everest style ) and plays to the airport. After 2 hours drive to the city of Lidice .
The park has recently been established and is based in Mangaratiba (!? ) . Apart from that , the park is restricted to legal boards and delimitations . An exploration invitation. -> For climbers , has LOTS of virgin wall.
The great friend and ichthyologist Paulo Petry was with me , giving tips and having the patience of God , it was hard to get me out of the water.
Also participated in the expedition of a group of Rio de Janeiro National Museum. I documented some collections and learned a lot from these people .
I end the week almost forgetting my old ” Lambaris ” and ” Tuviras ” (popular names) in order to take on Astyanax e Gymnodontidae..
We drove in 4 cars ( 4x4) and circled by various collection points. This team works in the area, having already published a fish identification guide of the area.
Thank the patience of my friend Paulo, on helping me with the fish in the aquariums . A lot of beer and patience to let the fish retained … or making the catfish look beautiful.
