Khao Yai Natonal Park
Unfortunately we did not see any crocodiles. But some of our group thought they heard a crocodile slip into the water. If I was a crocodile I would not want to have our hyper group disturb my quiet nap!! We did see a beautiful lizard. And we found this metal rope over the stream — at a perfect height for Elias. The kids were in seventh heaven.
We all were already very happy (with our full tummies) to be finally entering into the park. But then, what was that???!! A horn bill? We birders had been saying to each other, “We might even see a horn bill, who knows!” But to be greeted by several Great Horn Bill upon entering the park? Wow. We were parked, recovering from the sighting of these huge birds, when who comes plodding down the road. Yes. A wild elephant.
Hello, big dude. As Steve said, “Ten Thousand baht” — would this creature touch our rented truck? He was huge. Now that was a wonderful start to the time in the park!
