Many people are birdwatchers. I'm a mammal watcher. Most of our trips involve hunting for quirky mammals at some point. We've had some great fortune, but much of our success is a product of the incredible resource www.mammalwatching.com. The site is a major hub for trip reports and know-how exchange about where to find mammals world-wide. You can also follow the forum here. Get involved!
I will post our trip reports here in the next couple of weeks in case they are of interest.
