Sri Phang-Nga National Park

One of the best things about being in Phang Nga province in Thailand, apart from the beautiful beaches, is the amount of national parks and wild areas to explore. Out of all of these, Sri Phang-Nga National Park was absolutely one of my favourite places to visit, and here's why: The amazing thing about this …

Sleeping Lizards and Giant Stick Insects

Carly and I recently spent a few weeks in the UK and upon our return we were too busy to go out and about looking for wildlife. When we finally had a free saturday we woke up to the sound of the wind howling past our windows. All day the weather was terrible and the …

Fear Factor

A friend of ours, Linnea, had been asking  if she could accompany us on one of our herping trips and what better excuse for us to check out our favourite herping spot again (as if we needed an excuse!) Linnea wanted to see some snakes and as we headed up the trail I assured her …

Stripy Animals

After seeing seven snakes on the last visit to our herping spot we were pretty sure we wouldn't see as much wildlife on our latest visit, but once again our spot suprised us. Not long into our walk we almost stumbled upon this Malayan Banded Wolf Snake (Lycodon subcintus), literally. It was right on the …

Wildlife by Torchlight

We moved house again...... My partner and I are now living in a different part of Thailand and of course a new house and a new area means new wildlife to find. Our weekends have been busy so far since we moved which hasn't left much time for finding wildlife but luckily our new garden …

Most of my posts as of late have been focused on butterflies, but in my defense they are the animal that is out the most/the ones we see the most at the moment. This doesn't mean that we're not on the look out for other animals and we've been lucky these past couple of weekends …

A bounty of butterflies

Rainy season is definitely in full swing here and we have been having torrential rain everyday which is only ever broken up by gaps of murky wet spells. We haven't able to venture out much and our drive to and from work has looked almost apocalyptic some days. Drive to work at 7:35am (sunrise its …

Ton Prai Waterfall

Another sunny weekend and another national park to explore. This time we headed to Ton Prai Waterfall a little further afield than we usually go but well worth the trip.The park was beautiful and has definitely taken a spot in my top 5 favourites here in Phang-nga province. We hadn't even entered the car park …
