The reptiles of Thailand [interactive map]

Thailand is one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world, housing more than 350 different species of reptiles. Learning about these turtles, tortoises, lizards, crocodiles, and snakes is more important than ever, in light of recent threats to their extinction due to wildlife trade and loss of habitat for agricultural use of their habitat. Explore this map to discover a glimpse of Thailand’s rich reptilian population, with fun facts about each species from A Field Guide to the Reptiles of Thailand.
