The words of Ray Winstone in the opening scene of the movie "sexy beast" come to mind ..... "I'll say.. It's hot... Hot....Oh, it's f**kin hot ...Too hot!"
It really is hot at the moment and the humidity is going through the roof as the monsoon season is building up for its annual attack on us. Hard conditions for us and hard conditions for the forest animals also. Its time to cool down..... so here are a few camera trap clips of wild animals in Thailand's forests doing just what we do at this time of year, cooling down and applying some bug lotion!
An Asian black bear, Ursus thibetanus, who has just go to cool himself down and a particlulary hot afternoon.
A leopard, Panthera pardus, taking a much needed and cooling long drink
