Sungai Kinabatangan

After visiting Sepilok we took a cruise down the Kinabatangan River, which winds its way through the dense jungles of Borneo out to the sea. Along the river one can spot all kinds of wildlife, including many species of birds, monkeys, leopard cats, crocodiles, and much more.

This is the aptly-named Proboscis Monkey, which sports an enormous, bulbous nose. These aboreal creatures are rare but are seen frequently along this river.
