Rhinos and goral in Thailand? was created by wvwv
I took these photos about a year ago, pretty sure it was at Phu Kradueng visitor centre.

Is this info accurate?  I thought all rhinos were extinct in Thailand, and I thought goral was seen quite frequently?

Goral is still in Thailand, in the upper Northwest. Regularly photographed at the high elevations of Chiang Dao.

As for Rhinos - my gut says no. I think some live in the hope that there are odd survivors hidden away somewhere, which is possible although unlikely. It is one of those odd ones because if evidence of a surviving pocket existed there would need to be complete secrecy because of poaching.

This is a good link for info on Rhino in the region

You will see the last recorded potential was in 1975. My own guess would be if it existed anywhere still it would be in Hala.

Similar thing, and I am no bird expert, but aren't those birds a pelican and a toucan?  In Thailand?
