Wildlife Thailand is a community website for sharing information, photographs and experiences on Thailand's wildlife, bio-diversity and protected areas. Creating awareness of this wonderful world around us.

The wierdest looking of all Thailand's mammals in my opinion, the Sumatran serow (Capricornis sumatraensis). Found throughout Thailand but still not a common species, especially in the lower forest slopes. This fine animal was photographed in Pang Sida National Park, part of the Dong Phayayen - Khao Yai World Heritage Site.

After months of not photographing many mammals at all, this one appeared unexpectedly on our cameras. We are hoping this is a good omen for more to come as we are now firmly into the dry season and the forest is changing quickly. Some mammals have now changing their rainy season habits and locales to get through what is the harder dry season period for many of them. We are very hopeful of recording more in the next few months to show you.

Amazing looking animal and so wary of predators! Great how he walked right at the camera as if on display!
