Terrestrial Trackings Around Jamaica

In a few weeks I will be blogging daily from some of the most beautiful and remote locations around the island of Jamaica in the West Indies.   Best known for its Reggie music and Jerk Chicken, Jamaica is less known for having one of the highest number of endemic terrestrial land snails of any comparable land mass in the world.
