Malaysia (trying to) herping

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

A lot of rain here in Malaysia so we runned away from the Cameron Highlands and went back to the North> Yesterday we had a very good snake day.

2 Xenopeltis unicolor, 1 Ramphotyphlops, 1 nice Ahaetulla prasina, 3 Calloselasma rhodostoma, one I found next to our hotel door, 1 Dor Tropidolmaeus wagleri and 2 Naja Kaouthia.

Today a lot of rain and only a Ramphotyphlops and a dead Boiga spec.

:shock:
OK, after this, now I'm sure you will never want to do a trip in Europe again.

No worry my friend, Europe is in summertime and with you and the other continents will be winterplaytime.

Last night again no green pitviper luck. Now we are in Frasers Hill to (hopefully) find this green plasticlookelike snake;

The best tip is stay out of the jungle if you want to see snakes and bigger wildlife. Don t search in nature but search in really f''cked up areas.

Where would you like to go.
We went to Lumut- Pankor Island- Kuala Nerang- Cameron Highlands- frasers Hill and Lake Chini.

How long do you go.
