Krabi River Tributary, Krabi Province, Thailand

Sponsored by

Thailand, Krabi Province

The Krabi River is a body of water located in southern Thailand, this river flows into many tributaries which some end up in small limestone sink holes where Lambchop Rasboras (Trigonostigma espei) are found abundantly.

On the edge of these sinkholes, you can find many shallow banks and ledges with tree roots penetrating the substrate and leaf litter covering the floor. Long grass can often be found growing extensively on these borders.
