Paraguay : Herp guide or structure that can help

Hi everybody,

I need to do field researchs in Pargauay but I'm not working for an university or a scientific structure. So I'd like to know one of you can help me with a guide suggestion for snakes, or maybe a structure...
Plan is not to collect snakes or kill them. They'll be examined/photographed in situ then released. It goes without saying that it is not for a travel now. But I organize myself.

Thanks in advance !

Not much help here.

I guess you've seen this:

I am obligated to say, as a Dad and Granddad, if you have no field guide going in, treat every snake as venomous, till you can verify no fangs forward or rear!
In my life I've herped tropical zones that had no guides available at all, and had to be cautious with every find.
