I was looking for early birds at 6:00 a.m. in Khao Yai National Park and while I was passing by the park’s restaurants, I found this young rat wet and cold. You should have seen it tremble because of cold. I was going to help the Rat but the owner of a nearby restaraunt was also watching it and me as I took photographs. The body of the rat must have been really cold that its body was intensely shaking and it was also trying to warm it front legs by putting them in front of its mouth as it breathe out warm body air. Well, a rat is a rat; but as long as the animal is alive and do no harm we try to help out and make them live.
