Thailand diaries

On this page I will share regular observations of amphibians, reptiles and other fauna from Phuket island in Thailand as well as any other areas of the country I am able to visit since I moved here in July 2017.

In addition, I have started to write posts in French and Spanish in order to widen my reading audience a little!

Koh Phi Phi island (July 2017)
We stayed for 6 nights on the island of Koh Phi Phi when we first arrived in Thailand for a beach type holiday. I also saw a number of interesting species during our stay such as Mangrove pit viper Cryptelytrops purpureomaculatus and Tokay gecko Gekko gekko.

Khao Sok National Park (July 2017)
After leaving Phi Phi island we headed north to Khao Sok National Park where we stayed for 6 nights. Although it rained heavily for the majority of our stay here we still found a number of iconic amphibian and reptile species such as Wagler’s pit viper Tropidolaemus wagleri.
