 "Netted  us  a  Mystus  Sp.  "
 
 A  Query  doesnt  Mystus  have  a  black  spot  on  its  body  and  tail?  Coldn't  see  it  in  the  pic  so  asked.
 
 You  are  right  about  the  Sand  Mining  Mafia.  They  have  reduced  rivers  into  gutters.  weeds  and  grass  have  taken  over  the  aquatic  Fauna  and  Flora.  
 As  a  kid  used  to  see  fishes  in  the  Bharatapuzha  (keralas  widest  and  largest)  river  at  my  native  place  now  can  see  green  stinking  puddles  at  various  spots.  
 
 And  the  thousand  suns...  He  he  you  are  wrong  you  didnt  count  the  3  on  the  left   ROFL  
 
 The  Trip  and  your  writing  all   Rock On  Rocks

 Mystus  is  a  Genus.   There  are  over  atleast  half  a  dozen  known  Mystus  in  Western  Ghats  alone.   Which  one  are  you  talking  about?

 I  will  post  the  Biotope  pics  on  Monday  or  Tuesday,  Sujoy.
 
 Guys,  Saturdays  and  Sundays  are  chitchat  days.  I  still  have  to  reply  to  posts,  posted  by  members  when  we  were  in  the  field.  Many  of  those  areas  have  no  or  very  poor  coverage.  Hence  could  not  reply  immediately.

 To  continue....
 
 The  next  spot  we  stopped  had  this  strange  sight,  A  termite  mound  growing  on  a  tree.
 
 
 Myself,  Jhon  and  Rahul  were  drinking  a  packet  of  Curd,  which  was  well   in  the  process  of  fomenting  into  Cheese  when  Madhu  and  Deepak  
 came  back  from  checking  the  habitat.  It  appears  there  was  a  rotting  dog  carcass  there  in  the  water,  which  inhibited  the  Fishchasers©  ardour
 somewhat.  So  we  moved  off  from  there.
 
 Only  to  come  to  this  corner  of  God's  own.....Paradise!
 
 
 Let  me  share  the  timelessness  of  the  Paradise  with  you  Very Happy  
             
Link

 
 Even  rocks  had  character  in  Paradise  Chuckle  Anyone  for  Iwagumi?
 
 
 And  the  catch  among  these  rocks?
 
 
 And  millions  and  millions  of  wood  shrimps.
 
 So  that  was  the  end  of  the  second  day,  when  we  retired  to  a  new  nesting  place  for  ourselves.  Somewhere  warm  and  filled  with  food.
 
 To  be  continued.....
 
 Regards,

 Nayak,  that  video  just  gets  me  itching  to  get  my  backside  into  the  field  ASAP!!  
 Did  you  guys  run  into  any  pit  vipers  on  the  trip?  All  the  habitats  and  the  weather  make  it  an  ideal  time  to  spot  them  basking  in  clearings.
