Last year I made a trip back to Thailand for a conference in Pattaya. Not really wanting to leave the retreat complex in a city of Pattaya’s reputation, I was glad to see that the conference center had a decent garden and a nice large pond, which was the epicenter for some herp activity. I was happy with what I saw – it just goes to show that even a little plot of land in the middle of the city can have some thriving wildlife. Here are a few of the residents:
