Boys behaving badly

This was captured on my first safari in the rainforests of the Kinabatangan River in the Malaysian state of Sabah, up in the north-east of the island of Borneo. One claim to fame are of course these endemic fascinating fellows. The adults have a large nose and belly. This one here is a male, hollering aggressively at some others. His body language is unmistakeable.


This was shot on a boat ride on a tributary of the main river, right after the rain had stopped. The light was not the best, but then neither was this fella's behaviour :-)
