Rahul on this week's Client Corner on the Toehold Blog.
And yet that's what participants of the Amboli Macro-Photography Tour, seen here with Skippers Sachin Rai and Santosh Saligram, received over a little more than three days.
13 Malabar pit vipers, 13 green vine snakes, and one cat snake and checkered keelback apiece constituted an astounding tally of 28 snakes for the Tour, in a variety of locations, situations and lighting conditions!
This of course was only the icing on a cake studded with treats such as Deccan banded gecko, the Bombay leaf-toed gecko (Hemidactylus prashadi) and (probably) Brooke's gecko (Hemidactylus cf. brookii) and a couple of day geckos; a caecilian, and a couple of head-spinningly big stick insects.
The frog-and-toad stars were led by whom else but the charming Malabar gliding frog (Rhacophorus malabaricus), of which both smashing portraits and behavioural images were made, and composed of many species including the Indian bull frog, the ornate narrow-mouthed frog (Microhyla ornata), wrinkled frog (Nyctibatrachus petraeus) and skittering frog (Euphlyctis cyanophlyctis) in or by water; Bombay bush frog (Raorchestes bombayensis) and Amboli bush frog (Pseudophilautus amboli) suprisingly high up trees; with Amboli toad (Xanthophryne tigerina) on rocky grass patches and Amboli leaping frogs (Indirana chiravasi) tucked away, apart from a lone bicoloured frog (Clinotarsus curtipes)!
Periodically, a Roux's forest lizard (Calotes rouxii) and a purple forest crab (Ghatiana atropurpurea) added a splash of super-exoticism to the mix.
There's no serpentine way of saying this: it was monsoon magic indeed.

Great place to see it: Pantanal, Brazil
The noisiest in the otter family, the giant otter is a peaceful but territorial and social species. It lives mostly in Pantanal and along the Amazon River, which is why you need to be in Pantanal this September! This otter has been poached extensively for its velvety pelt and habitat degradation has also added to the decline in its population. It has been listed as endangered by the IUCN.
The giant otter has exceptionally dense fur and webbed feet that help it live an amphibian way of life effortlessly. It feeds almost exclusively on various fish, but sometimes, it consumes snakes, turtles, crabs and small caimans. Although it might have to compete with other species for food, it doesnt have serious natural predators except humans.
The throat and under the chin of the giant otter have unique markings of cream or white fur, and this is used to recognise individuals through a behaviour of displaying its throat and upper chest called periscoping. The giant otter digs holes -dens - in riverbanks and the female otter gives birth inside these dens that have multiple chambers and entrances.
Try your luck in Pantanal and see if you can photograph this adorable creature or a bunch of them in their natural habitat. The giant otter is the longest member of the weasel family, which is why it is our Animal of the Week!

Great place to see it: Borneo, Malaysia
If you thought courtship and bonding was probably the biggest deal of human life, the rhinoceros hornbill might make you want to think again! Read on and youll know why.
Dwelling in the montane and lowland tropical and subtropical climatic conditions, the rhinoceros hornbill is found in the dense rainforests of Borneo, Java, Sumatra, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore. This large arboreal birds black plumes, white legs, and the orange and the red bill and casque are ought to mesmerise you in the forests of Borneo this October.
The rhinoceros hornbill feeds mainly on fruit but its diet also includes small reptiles, insects, smaller birds and rodents. So, coming to courtship of this bird the female hornbill should trust the male completely and expect him to bring her food and everything else she needs as she begins to dwell in her nest inside tree trunks, incubating and raising her offspring.
Some groups in Borneo believe that the rhinoceros hornbill is the supreme worldly bird, and they also use its effigy to invite Sengalang Burong, the God of augural birds, to the feats of humans. It is also the National Bird of Malaysia and for these reasons, the rhinoceros hornbill is our Animal of the Week!

A species of hyena native to the sub-Saharan Africa, the spotted hyena is the largest known member of Hyaenidae. Known for its complex social behaviour, this hyena is the most social of the Carnivora. It is the only mammal that lacks an external vaginal opening, and the female hyena wears the pants in the family, and its got balls! Its no joke; female hyena is bigger and known to be more aggressive than the male. It has an enlarged clitoris which they can erect at their will to attract males, like a pseudopenis!
The social system, which is matriarchal, however, is rather aggressive than cooperative. A male has to dominate others in the clan to gain access to kills and mating opportunities.
The spotted hyena is so adaptable and opportunistic that although it is mainly a hunter, it can also scavenge. It can not only eat and digest skin but also bone and other animal waste!
Interaction between humans and the hyena has had a long history. But it has had a negative reputation in African folklore and Western culture, as it has been mostly viewed as gluttonous, cowardly, greedy and foolish, but still dangerous.
The hyena is also known to use a deceptive behaviour giving fake alarm calls while feeding even when there are no enemies around, so that it can scare away other hyenas. Also interesting is the fact that it is known to plan in advance on hunting specific species in different ways! And watching this species in action could be one of the best wildlife experiences for you this August.
Sign up for The Great Migration Photo Tour to Kenyas best-known wildlife reserve, Masai Mara, and make some defining pictures of this most exquisite mammal activity on Earth!
Great place to see it: Masai Mara in Kenya, Africa
The smallest of Africas big cats but the fastest land mammal on Earth, the cheetah is a slender-bodied and long-legged cat that you dont want to miss watching on the picture-perfect plains of Masai Mara.
Owing to its habitat (grasslands and not forests) and its prey, the cheetah relies more on chase than on ambush. And virtually every aspect of its anatomy is geared to help it reach dizzying speeds for the purpose.
The teardrop marks below its eyes are believed to help cut the suns glare during the day as it hunts in broad daylight. Unlike other cats, it has non-retractable claws to afford maximum grip while on the run. It also has enormous lungs in proportion to its body size. At full speed, the cheetah is air-borne much of the time, with its long tail helping it steer and change direction to keep up with its dodging prey.
Its body temperature can increase by 50% during the course of a sprint, quickly reaching near-fatal temperatures, which is why it must restrict itself to sprints not exceeding 500 metres. And for its ability to very nearly outrun a Formula One car from a dead start for the first few seconds without pollution or noise, it is our Animal of the Week!

Last year 2016 - was a great year for us and the amazing big cat showed up a dozen times in the 5 days we spent looking for them. This individual walked miles trying to find something, that too in the middle of the day.

One of the most popular mammals in the world, this second-largest living big cat called the African lion is the one to watch in Masai Mara, Kenya, this August. Despite being one of the most easily recognisable animals in human cultures, the African lion has been classified as a vulnerable species by the IUCN. For those lions that inhabit the vast savannahs and grasslands of Masai Mara, The Great Migration is that time of the year to feast on wildebeests, zebras and Thomsons gazelles among other prey.
The lion is uncommonly social compared to the other cats that are generally shy and elusive. Prides of lions can be spotted, which usually include related lionesses, offspring and a few males. Groups of lionesses usually hunt together, and their preys are mostly ungulates. Although the lion is an apex and keystone predator, more than 50% of its food, whenever theres an opportunity, becomes the share of expert scavengers.
The lion is nocturnal and rests during the day.
The male has the popular mane fringes of hair around its face thats unique among feline beauties and has been depicted extensively in paintings, national flags, sculptures, literature and also movies. It is widely considered a symbol of strength and valour. The lion is also kept in zoos across the world, mainly for breeding programmes, and this dates back to the menageries of the Roman Empire.
The closest feline relatives of the lion are the tiger, the jaguar, the leopard and the snow leopard. This big cat likes to rest for most of the day; it is known to spend an average of two hours every day walking and 50 minutes eating. Sporadic bursts of activity happen usually in the night until dawn. And when the hunting happens, its usually in groups, so watching some action of the lion in the wild could be as overwhelming as it gets in the Masai Mara.
The Great Migration is not just about the innocent wildebeests, the adorable zebras and gorgeous Thomsons gazelles. The Mascot of Migration were talking about today is rather a ferocious, opportunistic apex predator thats capable of taking almost any animal the Nile crocodile, which could be easily considered the second largest reptile in the world!
The agile and ambush predator that it is, the Nile crocodile can wait for hours or days or even weeks for the prey to come within the attack range, for a suitable moment to attack. Its bite is known to be extremely powerful, and once it has its teeth sink into the flesh of its prey, the grip is almost impossible to loosen, and the crocodile can hold even large prey underwater to drown.
The Nile crocodiles mouth-gaping for hours while basking in the sun helps in thermoregulation of their bodies. Even as it lies inert, it is known to be constantly aware of its surroundings and the animals around it. This crocodile, like most other reptiles, lays eggs and they are usually guarded by the female. This splayed-legged, powerful-tailed, powerful-jawed, scaly crocodile is one of the most dangerous species of crocodiles for its fierce hunting abilities.
If you are fortunate, you will be able to watch some breathtaking action during The Great Migration, when the Nile crocodile has the best chances of killing wildebeests, zebras and Thomson gazelles as they cross the Mara River. The crocodile-infested waters, during that time of the year, contain in their depths stories of the wild to be unravelled in all uncensored glory.
