... Hornbill and another 5 types to boot. We sighted Fish Hawks, Egrets and Cormorants all looking for breakfast. We searched in vain for a sighting of a crocodile, only finding a young one laying on a piece of driftwood at the river bank.

I think the heat and the monkey just take it out of us. ...
... around the corner.
Entering the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary was a little overwhelming at first for there were monkeys everywhere. Not only the Proboscis monkeys we had been expecting, however a large number of Silver Leaf monkeys along with some Hornbill birds. As I leant out over the balcony rail, I got the fright of my life as a Proboscis monkey swung down from the rafters and landed with a thud on the railing beside me before ...
