a field guide to the planet - by Damon Ramsey
The reptiles of the freshwater lakes, rivers, ponds, wetlands and rice paddy fields of tropical Asia...
Crocodylus palustris, 'Mugger Crocodile', 'Marsh/Broad-snouted Crocodile' (Bundala, Sri Lanka). It is found most commonly in India and Sri Lanka, but is also recorded in Pakistan, Nepal and Iran, but is probably extinct in Bhutan, Bangladesh and Myanmar.
Varanus salvator, 'Asian Water Monitor', (Talangama Wetlands, Sri Lanka).
Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? The first expedition I am booked to work on after the virus is Micronesia, New Guinea & Indonesia in 2021 with Silversea. Meanwhile I am giving a lecture on the Sunshine Coast (Australia) on the "Sounds of suburban south-east Queensland".
