Flying by helicopter over Borneo can be a harrowing experience. The majority of the eastern seaboard look likes this picture. The protection of the remaining forests is essential to preserve the biodiversity of the island. ⠀

This guys throat pouch is impressively big. If you notice his hand, one of the fingers is broken. This is a common sight to see in big males with broken fingers, usually due to fighting with other males. His home is Danum Valley, and it is an important stronghold for orangutans living in Sabah.⠀

Bobcats have a large distribution throughout the North America, and have always been a species that I love to encounter. There are some very reliable places in the Bay Area to see these, and the population seems to be thriving.⠀

Tigers are one of my favourite animals on this planet. I can’t wait for upcoming India trips to see more of these beautiful felines!

Proboscis monkeys are endemic to the island of Borneo. They have a multi-chambered stomach like a cow that ferments leaves for them to be able to absorb the nutrients. Like me, they carry about a 1/3 of their weight in their stomachs.⠀

The woodland kingfisher (Halcyon senegalensis) is a kingfisher that is widely distributed in Africa. Did you know that there are many kingfishers like this one that are not dependent on rivers and water? This is a personal favorite species from Africa.⠀
