This past Saturday I returned from my mini-road trip from Dallas to pick up alligator specimens and parasites from last year harvest’s. But instead of getting nice and cozy in my home, I started prepping for my trip to Chicago in a couple of days. And the days have creeped up and now I”m in the hustle and bustle of LAX to get on a plane to Chi-town. So what’s taking me to Chicago???? I’ve been asked to give a presentation on my research by the Chicago Herpetological Society. I’m very grateful and very excited to give a presentation on my research to this group of reptile lovers, and hopefully inspire them to love crocodilians as much as I do, as well as give them a lasting impression on how cool parasites are! All I know is the first thing I want when I get into Chicago is a nice slice of Deep Dish Pizza…and take a stroll down Navy Pier!
