Monkey Business

I'm going to apologize in advance for this post but I just take the photos, I don't control the wildlife  So many captions come to mind for this photo but I went with the safe "family-friendly" option and called it "Monkey Business".

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

Pygmy Elephant in Borneo.  They are an endangered species and their population is only thought to be around 1500. 

The smallest in size of Asian elephant subspecies, the pygmy elephants of Borneo are baby-faced with oversized ears, plump bellies and tails so long they sometimes drag on the ground as they walk. They are also more gentle-natured than their Asian elephant counterparts.

Once believed to be remnants of a domesticated herd given to the Sultan of Sulu in the 17th century, pygmy elephants were determined by WWF to be genetically different from other Asian elephants. DNA evidence proved these elephants were isolated about 300,000 years ago from their cousins on mainland Asia and Sumatra. Over time, they became smaller with relatively larger ears, longer tails and straighter tusks. Today, the pygmy elephants of Borneo are the smallest elephants in Asia. (text credit to WWF)

Eye On The Prize

I've finally had a chance to start looking through Borneo photos...still haven't edited many though and not sure when I'll have the time. I leave again tomorrow for a very important trip to Oregon - not photography related for once. This trip is all about family <3 p="">
