A Santa Fe researcher, a member of the Ministry of Environment and CONICET , will be part of a special team that seeks to find a missing link: a predecessor of two types of crocodiles in the giant of the t to the Orinoco.
In Venezuela, this team led by a Mexican specialist, will have the purpose of finding the ancestor of the Orinoco alligator and the American crocodile. They received a scholarship from the National Geographic Society to fulfill this task, which will require delicate fieldwork.
Pablo Ariel Siroski has a doctor in Veterinary Sciences and has long studied Yacarés . Having become a specialist, he managed to integrate this elite team, composed of researchers from Mexico, Spain, Panama and Argentina.
The Orinoco River Delta is known worldwide for its forty thousand square kilometers of surface, in which its gigantically wide river forms, around, dense forests and wooded streams. There, a tribe called the Waraos still persists, with whom, for the members of the expedition, it will be very important to establish a fruitful relationship, because they will need guidance to be able to work at night. Waraos sleep on the river, in palafitic houses .
Not less: these ancestors of crocodiles , if they are found, can measure more than four meters . Quite an adventure that these specialists have ahead.
Soon, Santa Fe will surely have a person who will arrive with anecdotes and unique stories, brought from the very heart of the Venezuelan jungle. In addition, of course, to have contributed to valuable international research.
