So what is left to do during these times, other than Facebook-stalk people who live in megadiverse habitats, or Facebook info-sharing groups of places I wish I could visit now…
Well, here’s my week’s finding: remember when Jon Hall was at Mt. Kinabalu the first time, he saw a Malay Weasel and figured they would be easy to see there? That was well over a decade ago.
When I was there back in October, I didn’t get the sense that they’re still easy to see there. But despite my personal experience, apparently, while not necessarily easy (small, sneaky and relatively shy) they’re still pretty common, and “are regular at the Park HQ. We’ve seen them predating birds nests too”.
It’s always good to hear that old news about mammals are still relevant. So i I just wanted to share. Nothing like a nice, orange mustelid to start your morning.
