Finally...we found one.

That's right, we found our first live muscle in the Mara River this last week. Martin, our guard for the day, actually located it.

We were on the banks of the Mara River doing our intensive macroinvertebrate sampling while Martin was watching for crocodiles and hippos. During the three hours we were there, the water dropped almost 20 centimeters. Martin caught a glimpse of the exposed muscle trying to work his way back down into the water since the quick drop in flow had left him high and dry.
