This is the part of me and my blog that my biology-colleagues know the best – the beautiful nerd in me. On this page I will try to make you see world through my eyes, the eyes of a biologist. I know many get scared just by seeing the word NERD, don’t be one of those. Fear will only make you miss all the awesome things that make the World what it is. So don’t be afraid and join me in my “explore the world” tour.
- As promised I am coming back with some info on all the beautiful creatures we encountered on our Thailand adventure, whether we just met them in the wild or in captivity. First of all I want to make clear that we did not have the underwater camera and therefore all the fish or sea animals plus some terrestrial were borrowed from sites like ADW, Arkive and so on. It is important for me that you guys understand that most of the photos were not taken by me and that credits for these beautiful photos go to many different talented people (thus I also left visible who made them and from which site I took them). Besides that, we saw many more species than what I presented here. Since I do not have the needed guide books for Thai animals to identify all of them, I had to limit myself on only some. Not to mention that the memory is such a tricky and forgettable thing that many lovelies will sadly not be mentioned. The latest input of my awesome nerdiness is coming your way! 😉 Ready??? You better be! 😉
These were some of the marine fish species we were taking a swim with on daily basis:

Besides all these colorful and playful fish we also got to hang out with these, for some more and for some less, spectacular animals. The possibility to see those animals outside of the zoos and aquariums had a great importance to me. Just magnificent!

Sadly not all the animals were as free as the ones above. Some of the pics with the captive animals you could have already seen in my Thailand report. Still, it was a great opportunity to hang out with those, and I am sure I would not have done that with the wild ones of the same species. Ohhh no sir, meeting cobras in wild is no wish of mine. Luckily these were kept here on a secure 2 m distance from us. 🙂 Besides cobras, hereis the rest of the animals we got to admire closely: Thailand animals in captivity

- If there is a good natural-history museum in the town there is a very high chance I have been there. 😉 In this case it was the marvelous one in Vienna. It is not hard to guess which animals interest me the most. Sadly my insect and invertebrates collection is still in my closet in Croatia. I must make a new dot on my to do list: Bring all your awesome preserved samples from Zagreb to Germany. 🙂 Next summer, I promise! 🙂
