GReat job on the civet cat defense !! TAiwan should haul off restauranteurs caught selling civets with stiff fines and jail time. That will stop people catching them. Also anyone caught catching protected wildlife should get a 5,000,000nt fine or have their possessions confiscated and face 5 years in jail. That will help stop this shit.

Taiwan has got fewer and fewer wild animals, they must be protected.

Sorry, no pix of the civets....as soon as I had the cam ready, they took off :-(

That blue-tailed skink is the juvenile version of the Elegant skink (Eumeces elegans). Pity they don't keep that tail when they grow up. It's meant to divert attackers from the head.

I don't get it. How is this related to the thread topic "Wild animals you have seen in Taiwan"? :loco: Either you posted this in the wrong thread, or you have made a ridiculous attempt at humor. :ohreally:

Saw a good size Taiwan sambar deer buck this morning in Jiaoshi in the hills behind all the hot spring hotels. Still had antlers which I guess should be falling off soon? Didn't seem worried about the dogs barking and just directly headed to where it wanted to go. Stopped a couple of times in open space to look back.
