Chambal Sanctuary India

Spend some weeks in India last december and made it to the famous chambal river sanctuary.

Saw a lots of mugger crocs and gharials in a 1h safari. Highly recommend this place. Seems to be the only clean river I saw in 4 weeks travelling trough india.

Singapore Pics and New Member

I`m a swiss based 30something years old guy, who rediscovered his fascination for herps. Spent quite some time herping at my two last trips to singapore. I was more or less successfull as you can see in my flickrpage: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/19811535474/in/album-72157656598358799...
