Some highlights captured over a three month period were: "....clouded leopard showing up repeatedly to mark his territory, a herd of Asian elephants passing by and stopping at the sound of the camera-trap, listening carefully while one of the herd probes the camera with its trunk; Malayan tapirs inspecting our cameras; a secretive Asian golden cat patrolling the night trail; a water monitor attempting to destroy our camera (this actually happened with two different cameras); a rare Fea's muntjac walking the trail."

Cool! I have never been anywhere south of Kui Buri - looks a great place.

I particularly liked the clouded leopard and asian golden cat footage, and what a strange infection/? on the hindquarters on one of the elephants - fascinating.
