Below 3 photos are from the Kinabatangan River complex.

# Malayan Water Monitor Lizard
# Oriental Darter
# Borneo Pygmy Elephant, Mother & Child – endangered spices, only 1,000-1,500 left, the adult males height are only 2.5m vs the Asian elephant 3.0m, and has a more babyish face, larger ears and a longer tail, that almost reaches the ground.

Normally you will only see the foraging at the riverside, so it is a real treat when you see 30 adults and juveniles crossing the river. Here a mother with her 1-2 month old baby trying to ensure a safe passage across the river. :applause:
