|Approximate location of Nanga Sumpa in southern Sarawak.|
|House Gecko Hemidactylus sp.; in case you were wondering, it's on a whiteboard!|
|Another gecko, which I can't offer a name for, making the most of technology by lurking|
inside the open light fitting. Good for it, but a bit tricky for getting the photo.
|This was a very impressive big Wolf Spider Family Lycosidae; if I were smaller, I'd have been very nervous indeed.|
|This is a big Tractor Millipede, like all of its kind a complete vegetarian, recycling the forest floor litter.|
I think the genus is Barydesmus; like every member of its entire Order, Polydesmida, it has entirely dispensed with eyes.
|A water spider, spreading its legs so that at least part of the spider's weight is borne by the water surface.|
I would surmise that it was hunting tiny fish.
|Tarantula at the mouth of its burrow, awaiting a passing dinner.|
I think this is one of the 'earth tigers' of sub-family Ornithoctoninae.
|The Giant River Toad is found only in Borneo and Sumatra.|
This one clearly forgot the mosquito repellant!
|White-lipped (or Copper-cheeked) Frog Hylarana raniceps.Two of these inhabited a retired canoe at the water's edge.|
|Cinnamon Frog Nyctixalus pictus, a climbing shrub frog of the family Rhacophoridae.|
|Striped (or Spotted) Stream Frog Hylarana signata, another beautiful frog in the same genus|
as the White-lipped Frog we saw earlier.
|A minute snail with a very strange shell arrangement that I couldn't - and still can't - quite make out.|
|A very bright green little katydid.|
|An extremely hairy little caterpillar, which would doubtless be very uncomfortable indeed to encounter.|
|A nest of tiny ants in a rolled leaf; probably also worth admiring from a respectful distance.|
