    Default Wildlife SOS in Thailand

    Just looking through next weeks TV mag and notice that Wildlife SOS are visiting a wildlife sanctuary in LOS and joining it's owner on a Sun Bear rescue mission.

    Can be seen on Thursday @ 8pm on Animal Planet SKY 525 & Virgin 215.

    No doubt it will be repeated a few times over the next few days/weeks.

    The cat was rather lively at the front of the house not half an hour ago so knew something was there in the dark. About ten or eleven inches long and pencil thin. When I got really close I could hear him hiss. Had it been a frog the cat would almost certainly have killed it, but thought better of it on this occasion. Good find, by the cat.

    I did google it after taking the photo and found Laotian Wolf Snake straight away, Nic. You'll notice the rings are broken on my photo, so discounted that. Glad I didn't give it a big girly kiss with tongues, thanks very much.

    Maylayan Pit Vipers are our tiddles's speciality. This was the latest catch, only a baby (25cm?), but they're poisonous from day one and renowned for not scuttling off like many snakes do. There's only the front gate as a way out of the garden, so it's mum and siblings are probably still around. They are quite common and even the houses in the middle of the village which have wide a concrete road all the way around get them.

    Blimey, Phil. Just had a quick google. Like you suggest, there are probably larger relatives mooching about.

    Surprises me that Mother-in-Law doesn't get into the top 3 !

    I would have said Cobra (King and Spitting), Krait and Mangrove/Pit Viper.
