What a Beauty!

Living in Thailand I thought I'd learnt to expect the unexpected but a couple of days ago I had an unexpected but welcome suprise travelling home at night. We had run out of milk so jumped in the car and headed for the nearest 7-11 (a 5 min drive from our house). Whenever I drive …

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 …

My Favourite Snake Finds

I've always been interested in snakes but I never really made a point to go out searching for them. You see, living in Thailand means that a snake or two will inevitably show up in your house or garden at some point which was initially very exciting. After some time though, I began to realise …

Snake Shopping

It hadn't even been a week since we had relocated Bob when I received another message from my friend's husband (who had also given us Bob the Python) saying that he had another python, along with another snake that needed to be relocated. We were coming home from a shopping trip to a different province …

One thing about being snake mad is that eventually other people start to catch on. I am by no means an expert herpatologist, but at work I have become the person who is called when there's a snake or when someone has a question about a snake. More recently though, people have begun to ask …

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 …

Seven Snake Night

Snake Season

Our new herping spot is proving to be incredibly diverse and every time we visit it we discover something new. The snakes have definitely been the highlight for me and so far we've seen 4 new species. Here are some of my favourite snake pictures. This vibrant Red-necked Keelback (Rhabdophis subminiatus) This lovely White-spotted Slug-eating …
