Yellow-throated Martens indeed hop almost rabbit-like.
Other option, though, not moving rabbit-like might be Crab-eating Mongoose, they are common in the river beds too.
Burmese Hare seems to stick to open areas, I haven't seen this species in KK yet.

Or who knows one of the Bamboo Rat species. Not commonly seen, at least in my experience. I might have only seen it once, and even that sighting I am not 100% sure about.

And let's add one other contender in the small-mammal-category: the Brush-tailed Porcupine, though not sure if they are sometimes active in daytime.

ah yes... I think it must have been a Crab-eating mongoose by looking at pics, but it definitely took off fast and seemed to buck as it ran... cheers guys

Hi all,

Some good news from Kaeng Krachan; yesterday afternoon we got some rain. It started with a bit light rain for about 5-7 minutes, soon after we got a proper rainy-season style shower which continued for half hour or so. I am pretty sure more of the vegetation is blessed for another 3-4 weeks. I am though not sure how much of the park got that rain! Back at Ban Krang I met P'Pong, you can imagine the extra smile on his face! :)

Cheers,
Rushen

I just saw on the news theres a big forest fire in KK - and they were discussing the theory that it was set by local hunters.
