Thailand is a naturally rich country whose landscape ranges from lush rain forests to dryer forests and evergreens to mixed deciduous areas, all strewn over mixes of flat lands and hilly regions to provide a large array of natural habitats. The varying wildlife makes Thailand an ideal home for many different types of animals including; the rare Chinese goral
, many types of buffalo and boar, a few different breeds of ox including the gaurus hubbacki which can only be found in Thailand and Malaysia, the lesser mouse deer, various breeds of deer and many more types of animals.
With such a large array of hunting grounds and many different forms of wild game Thailand is also home to many different types of predators. Just like the animals they eat the predators themselves range from smaller animals to larger dangerous animals. Some of these predators are predators that can be found in similar regions like wild dog, mongoose and weasels, while others are more exotic like bearcats, leopards and tigers. The jungle regions of Thailand also house many different breeds of wild jungle cats
that make dangerous predators to both the animals they eat along with any other predators and even people that wander too close to their territory.
Thailand also has many different lakes that have thriving marine ecosystems living within them. Within these lakes visitors can find many different animals ranging from the rare Chinese white dolphin to the more common minke whale
, with a large array of common and exotic dolphins, whales, porpoise's and other marine life scattered amongst them.
