Northwest side of São Tomé
Today, we explored the north and northwest sides of the island and again there were no limpets to be found. In fact, the intertidal rocks host very few organisms. We have seen many nerites, a few tunicates under rocks, small anemones, heaps of crabs, encrusting bryozoans, and two or three other species of snails. However, we did find the Cobra bobo, a beautiful yellow caecilian native to the island, we met many wonderful people, and saw spectacular landscapes.
