By Achong Tanjong, 29th January 2014;

The carcass of an animal was discovered by a local worker floating in the river near the Wood Discharge Complex of Forestry Department in Jalan Kota Batu at Simpang 980.

According to Awg Jeluddin bin Ahmad, the dead animal was found at around 7.30am near the woods.

He said, “This is the first time I have seen an animal like this since I started working here for over 30 years. When I saw the carcass of the animal, I immediately called my friends, but they also did not know what animal it was.”

Might this be a Bornean Slow Loris (Nycticebus menagensis)?
