Hi, Frank Indiviglio here. I’m pleased to say that I’m now posting several notes (“Tweets”) on Twitter each day, 7 days a week. I’ve worked with everything from ants to elephants, and so much interesting info comes my way – a lot of it through other zoologists and my own activities. Twitter will make it easy to share this as well as breaking nature news and discoveries as they happen. Things I’ve noticed in my collection or as I’m wandering about in the field, newly discovered species, interesting tidbits passed on by others, my take on some of the day’s news items…anything and everything animal-related will be mixed in.
Please “follow me”and check in each day…I’ll be posting under “findiviglio”.
I’m trying to include as wide a range of topics as possible. Recent posts have included:
A link to a free, comprehensive book on Red-Eared Sliders
Notes on my 21-year-old Weather Loach
Protection for Jaguars in the USA (yes, there is a small US population!)

And so on……
Hope to hear from you on Twitter soon!
