Gradually the rains are decreasing…

Gradually, the rains have decreased this past few weeks which have allowed for some visits to the forest without getting wet! Two recent visits to different parts of the island resulted in the same male of Trimeresurus phuketensis being found together with two Dryocalamus subannulatus, a Pareas carinatus, Rhabdophis nigrocinctus and an individual of Psammodynastes pulverulentus sitting in ambush on a step meters away from some houses. Furthermore, this week I found a Ptyas korros injured by a motorbike which was released without any serious complications.

ESP: Poco a poco las lluvias han disminuidas esta última semana lo que nos ha permitido visitar la selva sin mojarse! Dos visitas recientes en zonas diferentes de la isla han resultado en ver al mismo macho de Trimeresurus phuketensis junto con dos Dryocalamus subannulatus, un Pareas carinatus, Rhabdophis nigrocinctus y un individuo de Psammodynastes pulverulentus se amboscaba en un escalón unos metros lejos de unas casas. Además, esta semana encontré a un Ptyas korros herido por una moto lo que se liberó sin complicaciones graves.
