The marine biologists - two men and one woman from La Paz, Baja California Sur (BCS) - hired a boatman to take them from San Bruno, BCS, to Isla Tortuga (Turtle Island) last Saturday for a research trip.

We don't talk about San Bruno...

...collect them from the island, located 40 kilometers east of Santa Rosalía, BCS. It is home to an endemic rattlesnake species commonly known as the Tortuga Island rattlesnake.

Shouldn't it be Serpiente Island?

Should have had an emergency sat text communicator with them.

This is why you never pay the Boatman till he comes to take you back.

No killer shrews? Man-beasts? Not even an anthropomorphized volleyball? Just rattlesnakes? Feh.

That's a pretty serious dereliction of duty to abandon them like that. He better have a great excuse, or should be arrested.

The marine biologists - two men and one woman from La Paz, Baja California Sur (BCS) - hired a boatman to take them from San Bruno, BCS, to Isla Tortuga (Turtle Island) last Saturday for a research trip. They also arranged for him to pick them up and take them back to the peninsula, but he didn't keep that end of the bargain.


Sounds like they paid in full on the first trip.

Ah, Snake Island. The place where there are more than one snake per square yard, and you can't lie down with crushing three or four of them.

I know it well. Not well enough to find, fortunately.

Three scientists were stranded on a rattlesnake-infested island in the Gulf of California for three days... The marine biologists - two men and one woman

I swear I've seen that movie...

This is what happens when you send marine biologists to do a herpetologist's job.
