  • 7 Kilograms of trash found inside deer

    A wild deer was found dead in the Kun Sathan National Park, Nan Province. Officials at the park were notified of the deer found near the National Park’s entrance. It is a male deer weighing about 200 kilograms, 135 centimeters from ground to shoulder length and 230 centimeters long measured from the head to the tail. The deer is estimated to have died for about 2 days.

    Officials went to retrieve the deer and to find the reason for its death. There were no injuries on the body but the deer’s fur had been falling out and one of the hooves had a large scar that might have come from ripped skin. The kidney, heart, and lungs were all irregular. The shocking discovery was 7 kilograms of garbage found inside the deer’s stomach. Some of this included plastic coffee packs, instant noodle plastic bags, a lot of plastic bags, black garbage bags, clothes, rope, and underwear. The deer must’ve collected this collection of garbage for years while he was searching for food.

    Officials and the vet team currently estimate that the death is caused by Intestinal obstruction and old age. The garbage inside has been sent in for testing to find if there was poison in the food or any other infections connected to the deer dying.

    Every day we see news about animals dying as a result of our reckless littering and overuse of single-use plastic. It seems that even animals living in national parks cannot escape this slow and painful death process. Visitors that plan to visit national parks or those planning to go camping are recommended to throw away their garbage in designated trash bins, this is for the good of the animals and to keep the attraction beautiful for a long time in the future.

  • Siam Raptor Suwati, the new Thai Donosaur

    The Northeastern Research Institute of Petrified Wood and Mineral Resources from the Nakhon Ratchasima Rajabhat University reported the discovery of a brand new species of carnivorous dinosaur in Nakhon Ratchasima Province. The newly discovered hunter is nicknamed as “Siam Raptor Suwati”.

    The dinosaur is named after Thailand’s original name combined with the fact that this is a hunter dinosaur and the name Suwati is in honor of the Former Deputy Prime Minister. He has been supporting the research of the Institute for over 25 years from the moment that they started. The Siam Raptor was discovered from a total of 22 fossils from at least 4 Siam Raptor Suwati dinosaurs. Predatory dinosaurs hunted down other animals such as mammals and many of them preferred eating other dinosaurs both herbivore and carnivore dinosaurs. The most famous predatory dinosaur was the T-rex often placed as a centerpiece in dinosaur movies and comic books known as a ruthless giant monster with 2 tiny claws on each hand extended from the enormous body.

    The Siam Raptor is the latest discovery of a Carnivore Dinosaur and is also the biggest predatory dinosaur discovered today in Thailand. It is at least 8 meters long calculated from the fossil parts that are in good condition.  It belongs to the Allosauroidea a superfamily of Carnosauria dinosaurs.

    This is the 12th predatory dinosaur discovered in Thailand thanks to the teamwork of Thai and Japanese researchers in Nakhon Ratchasima. The institute started at least 20 years ago on the petrified wood discoveries and research that lead to developments in fossil research today. Suwat Lipalop the Former Deputy Prime Minister and the Council President of Nakhon Ratchasima Rajabhat University stated that he is extremely grateful and honored that both Thai and Japanese researchers recognize his support for the institution by naming the new dinosaur in his name.
