Thanks for sharing the images.
Will help me ID the species whenever I will encounter it.

Here follows the Wiki quote which seems to suggest that it is not native to Thailand, but can now be found here and in other areas outside its native homerange.
"Although castor is indigenous to the southeastern Mediterranean Basin, Eastern Africa, and India, today it is widespread throughout tropical regions."
