    Here is a video on the road out to the 2nd station and a bridge crossing over a small river.

    This is a picture of the map of Huai Kha Khaeng showing the different forest types. It's not a very good picture but you can see the different colors representing the different forest types.



    The forest types are (represents color on the map):

    Hill evergreen forest (dark green)
    Dry evergreen forest (medium green)
    Bamboo forest (yellow orange)
    Mixed deciduous forest (green)
    Dry deciduous dipterocarp forest (pale green)
    Dwarfish forest (red orange)


    The white dots with white rectangles under them are ranger stations.





    Directly to the left of the N compass symbol is a white triangle which is the headquarters.

    good thread, interesting too

    it is difficult getting wildlife pics, you often need to stay in the same place for days to get good ones, so never mind, but the experience must have been tough but also fulfilling

    It is always a great experience being in the forest. Just knowing that there are animals like elephants and big cats living around you is an amazing feeling. It is quite humbling to realize just how small you really are when compared to true nature.

    Great effort "mobs00". Always nice to see our TD members out and about to see what Thailand has to offer. I miss not being out and about in the adventrue type outing more but find myself doing the more sedate type trips. But that is ok as well. I'll have to plan 1 more adventure trip out and about before too long and before it is too late to do so. Again, nice effort and the pictures and commentary make for a nice trip report.

    Bruce just put up a camera trap picture of a Indochinese Tiger that he got this month at the same place where we slept the night in the platform.

    What a beautiful, beautiful animal!
    Also compliments to Bruce about the photos of banteng and gaur. Great thread, mobs; your previous threads about Kaeng Krachan and Thung Yai were also excellent.
    A couple of questions for you and Bruce, if I may: 1. those reintroduced Eld's deer that you saw at HKK, are they doing well? The reason I ask is because I remember seeing a study which reported 85% mortality if I understood well.
    2. I'm a bit surprised that a remote saltlick was visited by just one gaur - I would have expected a herd or two; some studies suggested that the gaur, sambar and muntjac are increasing - do you share that view, or has the prey base dipped again due to poaching?

    ^ Bruce is more qualified to answer your questions than I am. He'll be around soon as he said he was going to add a new thread.

    Hi Mobs,

    After several botched attempts I cant figure out how to load up flickr vdos so its going to have to be some links....

    About 150 meters from the digs at the first location, while Farangs sleep soundly (or lay awake listening to my snoring).................. http://www.whiteheadimages.com/blog/...s/157-its-hot-

    I recorded Asiatic black bear, sun bear, sambar, leopard, muntjac, crab eating mongoose, pig, monitor and bantaeng at the same location.

    Also did some research on the frogs, surprisingly tough to ID because of the colour.......http://www.whiteheadimages.com/blog/...-bufo-macrotis

    Wow! Great videos. The big old bear lumbering along and rolling in the mud is great!

    I think the only way to post a video on here is if it was linked to youtube.com

    Good info on the frogs too, thanks.

    I would love to see guar and banteng in the wild (tigers too, if I had a large-calibre rifle).
