Borneo

Adventure seeking virologist Dr Mike Leahy travels to Borneo where he learns the hard way that looks can be deceiving for the unsuspecting explorer. Whether trekking through the forest, climbing a mountain, exploring a 65 million year old cave system or cruising through the mangrove swamp, pretty much everything is out to get you in Borneo.

Dominated by mountains and lush rainforest, the hot and humid Sabah in the Malaysian region of Borneo is the perfect home for a staggering variety of killer beasties and deadly plant life. From a cute looking mammal that can kill with its armpit sweat to a magnificent mountainside plant that will swallow and digest just about anything, in Borneo, looks are more than deceiving – for the uninformed, they can be deadly.
