Photographer's Note

This cute fella waits patiently within metres from the visitors to Bako National Park, keeping his keen eyes on those who have food in their hands. I often wonder he ever mistaken my camera as food. One of his friend dashed to my camera bag just to get a chocolate wrapper. He will eat anything we eat, not just bananas. I suppose he is half human well acustomed to the presence of human.

It appears that these monkeys rule the park, making their presence almost everywhere around the quarters in the National Park. They were on the roof, verandah, walkway, prowling around and look for every opportunity to snatch some food from the visitors.

Bako National Park was established in 1957, it is the oldest national park in Sarawak, eastern Malaysia, on the island of Borneo. It covers an area of 27.27 square kilometres. Millions of years of erosion of the sandstone have created a coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands and stretches of white, sandy bays.

It is one of the smallest national parks in Sarawak, yet one of the most interesting, with its rainforest, abundant wildlife, jungle streams, waterfalls, interesting plant life, secluded beaches and trekking trails.

This was shot in the company of Santo(Skippy007) who was on his maiden visit to Malaysia.
