Opopeo, Michoacan

Opopeo is a small spring, feeding a stream that empties out into Lago Zirahuen. It is the habitat of the very rare Allotoca meeki.

Once home to many species, the pool at the spring has only introduced species now – mainly black bass from North America. Some of the native species survive, but only in the little streams leading from the pool.

This first series of photos are from Ivan Dibble’s visit in 2006, scroll down to see the changes.

These photographs are taken by Erwin Radax 8 years later in 2014.
