28.02.10: A very common resident in SE Asia -
even in big cities as Bangkok, where these pictures were taken in january. Two
of these animals were basking alongside one of the canals, right outside houses
- and we also saw a few swimming rather uncaringly.
4 subspecies exists - but this is the only one in mainland Thailand / SE Asia, while the 3 others are populations on islands. This subsp. can also be found in Borneo and Sumatra.
