Two Crocodiles Caught; 2 Men Bitten in Kampong Thom

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Well, there is even doubt that the supposedly last three Siamese in Thailand, in Khao Yai, are actually Siamese.

This wet season is bringing out the crocodiles. These are Siamese crocs, right ? I thought that they were a shy and retiring species who avoid humans. The floods make it easier for them to travel in search of food I guess.
These ar crocs that escaped from one of the farms. There are hardly any pure Siamese crocs left, I believe the last ones are in the Cardamons.
Yes, I was thinking of this thread where conservationists found some Siamese Crocodile eggs (Crocodylus siamensis) last year in Koh Kong province, and it's really a big deal : newsworthy/endangered-siamese-crocodile ... ile%20eggs
