First Phuket diary entry!

3rd August Phuket

Shani Cohen stayed at our place for the final night of his Thailand trip so we went out herping to two places I thought might be good. At the first spot, after observing several diurnal lizards sleeping in the vegetation Shani found a nice Oldham’s Bent-toed gecko (Cyrtodactylus oldhami). At the second spot the following morning, while myself and Kat took a leisurely walk to a waterfall, Shani spotted a Mock viper (Psammodynastes pulverulentus ) sitting next to a busy trail. He was quite happy with this find! After moving into my house I had also noticed a couple of dead snakes on a nearby road, one of which was a freshly killed Red-necked Keelback (Rhabdophis subminiatus). Around our house there are many Asian painted frogs (Kaloula pulchra) as well as many other calling amphibians which I will investigate later.
