I am a freelance zoologist from the Czech Republic fascinated by the tropics. Since 2012 I have undertaken eight trips to four countries in three continents; now I am in Ecuador. The more I travel, the more I prefer non-touristy sites that haven't lost their own spirit yet and enjoy meeting local people (the less Westerners I see, the better...). On iNaturalist I present mainly pictures of more overlooked groups of animals (invertebrates, herpetofauna etc.) from these travels. Of these groups, I upload at least one image of particular taxa from each locality regardless its quality since distribution of many tropical species (especially of invertebrates) is still poorly known. I enjoy most photography of nocturnals with my macro lens and external flash.

If you have any questions or you are interested in my pictures, do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail m.mandak@tiscali.cz.
