Important: The whole point of gathering information on unknown animals is to collect a corpus of information which can be examined for common features, and lead to further research, hopefully to the identification and capture of a new species. Therefore, anything you say is likely to be published - either on this blog, or in some other print medium. So, if you do not want your name published, please notify me at the onset. I will guarantee not to include your name in the report.
Nevertheless, it would be useful if you included a telephone number, and also an address if possible, in case I need to question you about some aspects of the case. These will never be included in any report.
