Hi Pals and Peeps!
Do you know what/where is Cat Tien National Park? I’m not sure either, well that’s where I’ll be going to my field trip in 5th grade on March. Let us do some research! Are you excited?I am! This cause of our field trip is for our ecosystem unit. It’s an over-night field trip for 2-nights and 3 days!
We are going to see that what will blow our minds with facinating creatures in the park. Animals such as Birds, Mammals, Crocodile, Fish, Deer, etc,. Basicly some animals that we don’t really see that roams around the streets like , dogs, specificly like Gibbons and Bears (and, etc,.)
Cat Tien is 278 square miles (which is 71,920 Hectares) that cover up the forest/park, and is located on the lowland-forest-and-swamp area on the southeast of Viet Nam.
In Cat Tien, there are Bamboos, Epiphytes (A type of sphere-like plant on tree), Lianas (A type of tree that makes up the forest), etc,. There are huge number of different type of species of plants in the forest(s).
I learned that in Cat Tien, they even have Rhinos! I also found out that they have several species of gecko(s) and Lizards that I’m wanting to see, I really would like to see the “Indochinese tree Agama Calotes mystaceus” which I veiwed on there website.
I am excited to go to Cat Tien and to see the “Indochinese tree Agama Calotes mystaceus” as usual because of it’s beautiful color of blue. And I am also excited to sleep with my friends, in that case, one more thing, on the Cat Tien web, they say we might see a gecko (coloured orange, white and brown) in our room… DON’T PANIC!
I am a Arachnophobia, well part. I will do anything to stay away from big-ugly spiders as I usually do (I hope not black-widow spider!). I can’t even kill a spider myself when it’s in a bath-tub! (Except for Daddy-Long legs) Don’t worry, I’ll get over with it. (and have fun!)
During this trip, I would love to learn why the “Indochinese tree Agama Calotes mystaceus” (As Before) is this color? And what makes it up, it is beautiful indeed. I would also like to learn why/how do Golden-Cheeked Gibbons contact to each other.

I Got inspired by the Indochinese tree Agama, so I found other beautiful Lizard Species on the web. I was facinated by its colour.
