Peninsular Malaysia 2015

For your reports/images, made outside Europe and the "Mediterranean" countries. Not to be too narrow minded and limited to our European/Mediterranean herps.

Got my Malaysia report online! Again a smashing trip with more than 100 species.

Below is just a small taste. Sorry I didn't make the effort to throw more on here just yet - I'm a bit "cyberexhausted" from making the website report ;) :oops:

Xenophrys aceras

Rhacophorus nigropalmatus

Draco blanfordii

Ahaetulla prasina

Boiga dendrophila

Popeia fucata

Tropidolaemus wagleri

As expected, a pant wettingly good report, some beautiful photographs of some incredible species.. your report, along with the up coming Morocco report from Gert Jan and the Turkish report from Bobby and Laura will take some equalling! herping outside Europe may be the way forward when /if I finish this damn tick list..
And as for seeing two of my favourite Asian snakes in one trip ( Calliophis and tropidolaemus) Sir are a complete bum bag :D

Beautiful! :P
I was in Malaysia during 5 different vacations, and I feel nostalgia seeing your pictures... places, food and herps. And I say "Hello" to all my malay friends who (maybe) will read my post here!
Even if it could seem easy, it's absolutely not an easy task to find reptiles (I mean: snakes!) in the wet tropics: nothing to do with our "easy" mediterranean spring! 8-)
No signs or tales about king cobras?

The blue coral snake... wow... I did not imagine they could grow up so large!

P.S. Interesting and unusual (for me) the nocturnal activity of both P.korros and Z.fuscus :shock:

So Jeroen, that costed me at least half an hour, but it was time well spend! Great report and too many supercool species to remember it all, so I will look again sooner or later, See you!

Fantastic buddy! Amazing array of species and showing so well the diversity of the rainforests in this corner of the world. Stunning pictures as well! Seeing this makes me very hungry towards some tropical herping again myself, but this standard will be hard to beat under suboptmal conditions in SE Africa.
