Forest dragon in Borneo. Photo by Rhett A. Butler
For the month of December, I’ll be posting some of my favorite pictures from 2012. All of these photos were taken during the course of my reporting travels.
This is an agamid lizard in Danum Valley, an area of rich rainforest in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. I was in Sabah twice this year looking at logging and oil palm plantations: Industrial logging leaves a poor legacy in Borneo’s rainforest.
