Some perils of birdwatching in the Malaysian jungle

posted in: Miscellaneous | 1

There was a recent tiger sighting in the Malaysian jungle that got Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh HSS to share this on 31st May 2010.

“When watching birds in the Malaysian jungle you face occasional perils. My most notable encounter was meeting a piglet of the Malaysian Wild Boar on a narrow trail in primary jungle. The baby squealed, the nearby parent snorted in alarm and I also let out a squeal of my own!

“We all ran in separate directions (Wild Boar males have quite dangerous tusks).

“This picture is that… of the Wild Water Buffalo (Bubalus arnee). When I see them in the wild, they give me such a hard stare that there is no way I will advance in any direction they are present.”
