Just wondering what sort of wildlife has been spotted throughout Asia?.Not talking about National Parks but rather outside of Parks.For me, I've come across a little,mainly Garrocks[Squirrels]which seem to be reasonably common,even in the suburbs of Bangkok.Other creatures include Water Goannas,a few Snakes and the usual toads.Think I may of once seen an otter out of the window on the BKK/Chiang Mai train.
Monkeys. I see monkey's fairly often. We had two the day before yesterday hanging off the temple roof across the street.
Snake - I've seen a few snakes. Including a Krait which I steered clear of. A friend of mine came face to face with a Cobra - which he said was unblievably quick when it reared up. I've only seen captive Cobras.

'Monkeys.I see monkeys fairly often'
Can't say I've seen any of those in the wild,MADMAC.Only the Lopburi type ones which are more or less semi-domesticared and they don't do a lot for me.They just want to pinch anything you're carrying as they reckon it contains food.
Seen a few Bats as well.
I live in Singapore so everyday my encounters with wildlife are limited to birds, geckos, and insects. There's some crazy insects even in Singapore.
When I lived in Thailand (near Nakhon Sri Thammarat) I'd see macaques, snakes, skinks, the larger geckos (tock-kay), scorpions, etc.
