    Here are some caterpillars I got whilst walking on the trail.










    And here is a good size tarantula.

    Nice pictures. Shooting with a camera is good. Shooting with a gun better.

    We continue deeper in and come to a large mineral lick. Lots of Gaur, deer, and elephants use this to get nutrients from the mud.





    We set up a camera trap here too.

    We walked into the jungle for about 3km up and down hill through overgrowth and now its time to go back.

    We get back to the truck around 5pm and move on to our last spot to set up 2 more camera traps in mineral licks. This is where the German got killed by elephants.





    Looking out from the camera trap.





    The mineral lick.

    It was dark by the time we got out of the park and we were all exhausted. So 3 days in Kaeng Krachan; not nearly enough. So much too see even at the campground.

    Sometime in the next couple of months we will be going back in, this time far in. A truck will drop us off around 30km from HQ’s and we’ll hike for 2-3 days through the jungle down to a river basin and stay for about a week. This is where Bruce got his picture of the Tapir swimming in the river. It is on the front cover of his new book.

    The families of 10 Finnish students would doubtless disagree.

    ^ The big stuff decided not to cooperate on this trip. Hopefully they will next time when we go deep into the forest.

    I like spiders - about what size, would you say , was that pretty one pictured at your breakfast table.

    That is also the most beautiful lizard I have ever seen....and because it's on a breeze block....we can see it more clearly. So, it's an ill wind eh?

    I am keeping the pictures of the civet....to scare my Grandson with.

    Wonderful pics. More please!

    Are there any naked natives?

    Purely from an anthropological point of view, you understand. It has been my passion for a while.

    Check my web site; The HUN. Com

    We've so much to learn.

    Great photos! I am a pilot and often fly a Zenair CH701 over the Kaeng Krachan area over the lake and back into the mountains all the way up to the Myanmar border. My plane is based on a grass strip near Tha Yang near Petchburi. I usually fly the plane with the doors off making it an ideal platform for aerial photos. If you are interested in flying and exploring the Kaeng Krachan area from the area drop me a line.

    You can google Zenair CH701 to see a photo of a similar plane or look at youtube videos of one flying. I'm not looking to make money, it only costs about 500 baht and hour to fly. I'm interested in photography, but unfortunately can't shoot and pilot at the same time! I've taken the plane to Krabi in the south and Tak in the north. I fly across the gulf to Pattaya regularly.

    I can't PM because I don't have 20 messages. So PM me if interested.

    Those things are huge, you can see there holes in the dirt. The Thais call them "boong", one almost landed on my head the other day when I was having a beer, scared the shit out of me. Biggest spider I'd seen by far.
