SPOKESMAN-REVIEW (Spokane, Idaho) 18 March 00 'Extinct' crocodiles found in Cambodia
A species of crocodile previously believed to be extinct in the wild has been found in the remote western jungles of Cambodia, a newspaper reported Friday.
Researchers from Fauna and Flora International sighted three Siamese crocodiles living in rivers and marshes within the Cardamom mountain range near Cambodia's border with Thailand, the Phnom Penh Post reported.
"To see three in such a short time suggest they are not uncommon in this area," field team leader Jennifer Daltry said about the Feb. 25 to March 7 expedition.
Siamese crocodiles, native to Thailand, were hunted to extinction in the country and only a few live in captivity.
The Cardamom mountain range has recently become accessible to conservationists since Khmer Rouge insurgents in the area surrendered to the Cambodian government in late 1998. Fauna and Flora International is a conservation group based in Britain and founded in 1903.
