Anthropologist from Barcelona, he started to travel Europe and Northern Africa pretty soon, studying several endangered and rare species. Afterwards devoted to herpetology (reptiles and amphibians), he started to write popular and scientific papers on that subject, totaling to date more than 200 papers. His travels and findings especially along the Neotropics (the Tropics of the New World: America), are legendary, and is considered as one of the most influencing herpetologists in the whole area. He now live in Costa Rica, but every year he travels countries like Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. He is a deep knower of Venezuela, country where he lived 16 years, before the politics forced him to move to a more peaceful place. Now, he offers expeditions and tours in Central America specifically searching for the most beautiful and amazing amphibians and reptiles. He is also a well-known photographer in such field, and published countless photos in books and articles and whole articles in journals and magazines around the world.
