  1. Hi, just arrived in Bangkok a few days ago and went to the market yesterday. I’m a herper and would love to have a chat with you. Can I email you?

  2. Ill be in Bangkok & Lopburi for a few weeks in December and, as a fan of all things herpatalogical, am looking for good places to see and interact with lots of reps, amphibs & creepy crawly.
