A few nights ago I went to Sepilok’s Rainforest Discovery Centre with Owen and Marianne, a couple of outstanding volunteers at the BSBCC. We arrived at dusk and went up onto the canopy walk to observe the flying squirrels before descending to ground level to walk the trails for an hour or so. There were species of frog and lantern bug which I had never seen before, but the most impressive animals seen were a glow worm (a beetle larvae I assume belonged to the family Rhagophthalmidae) and a Bornean slow loris (Nycticebus menagensis).
Here’s a bit of blurred and shakey video footage:
We had to be very careful about flash photography in the forest as it can affect the eyesight of some of the nocturnal wildlife. This is especially true for mammal species such as tarsiers.
This lantern bug was my favourite pic of the evening.
