That little creature is not that kind to me, it bite me when I try to move it into a bag. Yaiks..it’s painful but I am glad that we have it. We bring it back to our camp and we use our field guide book to identify this little creature. After take the measurements we are sure it is Ranee Mouse (Haeromys margarettae) but still a little bit confusion with the Sundaic Haeromys (Haeromys pusillus). This is because we are using A Field Guide to the Mammals of Borneo (Payne et al, 1998) and its only has description for H. margarettae. Lucky the freelance nature photographer (http://www.wildborneo.com.my) join our trip and he took a few shots of this animal. The photos that I have here are taken by him.
So, my advice to everyone that have passion and very keen to know about wildlife out there please put your safety as your priority when you are in the field. It was my stupidity that makes this little creature bite me and lucky it didn’t bring any disease. Now, I learn a lot of things when I am in the jungle. Safety is the best policy.
