Wildlife at Tanjung Piai National Park (Taman Negara Tanjung Piai), Malaysia

By on August 5, 2013 in Malaysia

Some shots, and a video, of some of the wildlife I saw in and around Tanjung Piai National Park (Taman Negara Tanjung Piai), Malaysia.

Even though I have been in Malaysia for 6 months now it still amazes me that I can see monkeys and lizards running wild, and bananas growing by the side of the road.

Mudskippers - these are great. Aways fun to watch, and can also be seen in the video
