The trip was only for fun. We went to South Africa and did some shark diving, and did find some spiders, snakes and scorpions. We went to Botswana for finding fishes in the Okavango and reptiles in Kalahari. And last Namibia for some reptiles. We did not bring any fish, or anything els with us home, that was not the point of the expedition.

I went with my good friend Tom Hallvorsen; some in the UK may know him.

Not many of you understand Norwegian but, her you can find and article about the trip in Norwegian.

Yeah he has to, because I know things about him hahaha! /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Seriously though, give him my regards next time you speak to him. Haven't heard from him for a few months so good to know he's still up to the usual tricks.

The trip and report look amazing. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Thanks. My pleasure sharing this pictures, and I should thank you for enjoying them.

Attached is a picture of a fish, that gave me some headache! I had a problem finding out what it was. First I thought it was some kind of killi. It is not easy to know, but would anyone care for a guess.
