Our office received a very rare visit from Varanus salvator (a.k.a Asian Water Monitor or Tua Hea/Varanus in Thai) last Friday. The visit was not long before this cute guest continued to wander elsewhere. Even though there are various reputations in Thailand, Japanese culture values them as a sign of good fortune. How does your social and scientific perspective perceive them?

AUN/SEED-Net Office welcomes all kinds of visit from business matter to a chit-chat! We are located at building 2, room 109-110, faculty of engineering, Chulalongkorn University. The office hours are on Monday-Friday at 8.30-16.30. We look forward to seeing you!
