Mammals

An extremely rare sound in Thailand

anothermysery sound

A very rare sound recording. It was taken in the Dong Phayayen - Khao Yai World Heritage Site late at night and it records two wild mammals. Both mammals are inextricably linked in their nightly survival. One is a sambar deer making a repeated alert call.

The other is a sound, in Thailand, that very few people will ever hear. Its an animal that very few people will ever see. It evokes fear from some and pure admiration from others. What do you think the other animal is?

This is spine chillingly thrilling! Imagine hearing that from your tent, wow!!
Reminds me of hearing Lions roaring outside our 'tent' in the Masai Mara, a far better wake up call then any alarm clock for sure!
