On the isle of Borneo an automated photo trap snapped pictures of an unknown creature. Slightly larger than a common house cat, with burly legs and a long tail, it appears to be a carnivore that not even the locals have a name for. The first pictures of the beast were taken in 2003, but not released pending further investigation. Those pictures are being released by the WWF to, most likely, confound local government’s plan to level the rainforest and erect a palm oil plantation. They haven’t yet captured a specimen of the critter.

The last time a new mammal was discovered in Borneo it was 1895.

With new varmints like this roving around unbeknownst to us, does it make anyone wonder if there’s still room for Yeti, Sasquatch, or Nessy?
