Here is my Basin enclosure. More to follow with respect to husbandry. I've found from watching numerous videos on youtube about ETB's and GTP's that many people haven't done their research. These species do require high humidity. But they also require adequate ventilation. Anyone can cover the top of a cage with plastic or tin foil and mist to get high humidity but they sacrificed vital airflow to do so. High humidity combined with stagnant air is a recipe for disaster. It creates a breeding ground for bacteria if you will. This cage has both active and passive airflow. It sustains 90 percent humidity during the day and 80 percent at night. It took a lot of experimenting to make that happen. But the work was worth it.

Fire up a TM bomber :) My tribute to the legendary Terence mckenna who passed 10 years ago this April 3, 2010. I'm creating this abridged (condensed) version in hopes that others will discover this hero and genius. dude This mesmerizing, surreal account of the bizarre adventures of Terence mckenna, his brother Dennis, and a small band of their friends, is a wild ride of exotic experience and scientific inquiry. Exploring the Amazon Basin in search of mythical shamanic hallucinogens, they encounter a host of unusual characters and discover the missing link in the development of human consciousness and language. Born in 1946, author and explorer Terence mckenna studied the ontological foundations of shamanism and the ethno-pharmacology of spiritual transformation. mckenna, the founder of Novelty Theory, graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a distributed major in Ecology, Resource Conservation and Shamanism. After graduation he traveled extensively in the Asian and New World Tropics, becoming specialized in the shamanism and ethno-medicine of the Amazon Basin. With his brother Dennis, he is the author of The Invisible Landscape and Psilocybin: The Magic Mushroom Growers' Guide. A study of the impact of psychotropic plants on human culture and evolution Food of the Gods has recently been published by Bantam, and a book of essays and conversations, The Archaic Revival quickly followed from Harper San Francisco. Most recently a group of discursive chats ...

This visualization displays monthly GRACE data in the Amazon basin. GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) measures mass distribution and in this instance is used to demonstrate water storage and movement in the basin. Warmer colors like red and yellow reveal areas with greater mass, or more water, while cooler colors like blue and green indicate areas with lesser mass, or less water. credit: NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio source: svs.gsfc.nasa.gov

Although administratively assigned to the Plateau Military Command, the brigade's operations are under the direct control of the Land Operations Command. Special Forces were initially formed in 1957 as a parachute trained rescue unit, which specialized in conducting deep jungle rescues along the Amazon basin. After conducting its initial selection, a US Army Special Forces Mobile Training Team (MTT) conducted the unit's first training course.
