2018 so far!

My first few outings in 2018 have been relatively successful here on Phuket. In terms of snakes over the course of the Christmas holidays I have seen a female Phuket pit viper (Trimeresurus phuketensis), a Malayan krait (Bungarus candidus), a mock viper (Psammodynastes pulverulentus), a green cat snake (Boiga cyanea), a red-necked keelback (Rhabdophis subminiatus), an Oriental rat snake (Ptyas mucosa) and an Asian vine snake (Ahaetulla prasina). Although some of these were found just before the new year during the Christmas break 😉 In addition, some other nice finds have been the Spotted Wood owl (Strix seloputo) and the Sunda flying lemur (Galeopterus variegatus) among others.

All the best for 2018!

  1. Marvelous selection! I’ve never yet made it to Thailand. Your post tempts me! HNY Matt.

  2. Thanks Steve, things are a little different here compared to Calderdale. However, it is harder to find owls in Thailand that’s for sure! I hope everything is well back home and that the local birds are doing fine.
    Happy New Year!
    Matt
