We arrived at Semenggoh Wildlife Centre (located 20 km south of Kuching) around 12:15 pm (to see Orang Utan, what else?) but found out we won't be able to see Orang Utan at that moment. Tourists can only see the Orang Utans during feeding time - 9 am in the morning and 3 pm in the evening. So we proceed to Kampung Bidayuh located nearby instead.
We came back again before 3 pm. This was the first time I visited the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre - the sanctuary for a number indigenous endangered wildlife of Sarawak, especially Orang Utan and Hornbills. We still have some time to walk around the area since it was only 2:45 pm.
The crocodiles. And frankly speaking, they look like dummies and their eyes look like guli. The crocodiles very hor liau, cos can stay still like muppet. Pura-pura bodoh waiting for unsuspected victim? :P
This crocodile even more keng chau.. Open mouth big big buat apa ? I looked at it for several minutes and it maintained the same posture. Dunno he stayed that way for how long liao. Really siao siao..
Tristania Whiteana Myrtaceae or Selunsur Putih. Tree with white barks.
Time to see the Orang Utan. This is the few hundred metres nature jungle trail I took to see the Orang Utan. The photo below shows the nature trails with plankwalk.
There are several Orang Utans with "identities" in the Centre - they have names. The Orang Utans here are rehabilitated before they were sent back to the rainforest, which is their natural habitat. The Orang Utans and the other wildlife will roam around freely inside the rainforest, but will return back to the wildlife centre during feeding times. They are clever, aren't they? ;)
We managed to meet up with 2 Orang Utans that day. Daniel & another orang utan (can't remember his name).
This is Daniel. He was busy having fruits feast on the feeding platform.
The other younger Orang Utan (? name) grabbed one papaya and few bananas. Take note the bananas he carried in his mouth and the papaya on his right hand. He scared to have meal together with Daniel???
p/s: I prefer watching the Orang Utan having their meals in Taiping Zoo :)
