Hello!

I am a macro wildlife cameramen and visiting Thailand in Februari. As a Dutch person I dont know anything yet about jungle wildlife, but would love to make an insect/amphibian/reptile scene. An short film of an awesome event! Do any of you have any tips or know biologist/entomologist to contact? That will be great! You can see my work on timvissercreations.com/ .

I think you will be struggling for insects in February - in Central Thailand at least, not sure about North and South. About the only thing that you will see easily re insects would be butterfly aggregations at the more "famous" butterfly sites (Kaeng Krachan and Pang Sida). Its a tough time for sighting other insects other than bees (who will find you to drink the sweat off of your body at most locations at that time of year).

For Central Thailand, insects are more associated with the wetter months. You may want to concentrate on your other targets.

Hi Tim,

Nice footage on your webpage!
Even though not the best time of year, it should be possible to find some reptiles. The wet season is usually better, but I just got home after 3 days herping and found surprisingly many snakes.
However, herping is generally best at night, and night access in the parks is limited; often not allowed.
It's better to find wild areas outside the national parks, which usually also reduces the chance of running into dangerous wildlife like elephants. Not always, as we noticed the last few days in an area where wild elephants just walk through the village at night, haha.

Reptiles and amphibians are everywhere in Thailand. You can find pythons in the centre of Bangkok, what else should I say, haha.
Not sure if I have time in February to help you out, but sent me a PM and maybe I can give some more tips. Dat mag ook in het Nederlands....
