Yeah it's incredible to know that all these years nobody recognized it as a different species. It is a beautiful animal. Also encouraging is the fact that all the three concerned governments - Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia and Malaysia recently signed a conservation agreement protecting Borneo's wild life :)

why the fuck is it that everything in asia is smaller. african lion is bigger than asiatic lion. asians are smaller than anybody else in the world. tigers are bigger than lions, im not sure but i dont think there's tigers in africa. if there is im sure it will also be bigger than tigers in asia. elephants in asia are also significantly smaller than african elephants. why??? is it the weather? diet? or just magic??? fuck!
