Scientists in Iran (65) More files... by Dr. Mark W. Moffett
Under the watchful eye of required security guards Mark Moffett travels to Iran with a group of scientists - the first expedition of its kind in decades. Working under a sweltering sun they work to trap desert creatures from lizards to gerbils with ingenious techniques while simultaneously learning about the local culture.
