The jungle of southern Peninsular Malaysia (part 1)
Barclaya rotundifolia (big leaf one) and Crypt. schulzei.
Piptospatha ridleyi "variegated leaf".
This tiny fly is a pollinator for Cryptocoryne schulzei. The flower of this aquatic plant is growing above water so that pollinator can crawl into the spathe to pollinate it.
Cryptocorne jacobsonii from the jungle stream of Johor.
Blood python (Python curtus brongersmai) from Peninsular Malaysia is different variant from the one that I saw in Borneo.
The young wild boar.
White Throated Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis) is very common in the oil palm estate of Johor but I never seen it in Borneo before.....
Jungle fowl (Gallus gallus) is walking very close to purple Heron (Ardea purpurea) in the oil palm estate of Johor. Take note jungle fowl is a wild chicken...it is not from the farm.
