    Fabulous report Jo et all! You had some great sightings. Deramakot continues to amaze.

    Our trip was a month later and yielded similar results with a few notable differences. Looks like the rain was a constant for all of us unfortunately.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I should add that Steve co-authored the report 🙂

    Great report. You might be disappointed about the Leopard but Otter Civet is way harder to see (and more interesting in my opinion), plus Marbled Cat, Sun Bear… amazing!

    We didn’t see sun bear either…
