When one talks about the biodiversity hotspots in India, Kolkata is usually not the first place that comes to your mind. The erstwhile capital of British India, it's an overwhelmingly crowded megacity. But here is an attempt to portray the spider diversity that manages to hang on in one of the most ...

Yes, making a decent post requires a lot of time and patience. I think it will be much easier to write another classic herping memoir, filled with your top notch photography of seldom seen species. Definitely will be the first to book a copy !

I remember some disturbed bloke haggling with u over some petty issue like bagging reptiles etc over here, following which u preferred staying aloof from the forum.

The Eastern Ghats run along India's Eastern coast, starting from the Khallikote mountains (the one we visited above) and going down further South into Peninsular India. The biodiversity here is very poorly documented compared to the Western Ghats.

Re: Eastern Ghats Herping Trip Report ! (Images Up)

Thanks AEthelred ! Definitely it was an exciting trip, though we saw much less than we had expected. But just herping in such pristine habitat feels like a blessing even if you do not turn up much in the way of herps :)
