Sambar Deer photographed at night grazing on the grassy padang next to the Maliau Basin Field Studies Center in Sabah. Sambar Deer are grazers rather than browsers i.e. they prefer grass to leaves but will eat almost anything that grows in the Borneo forests including bark, leaves and fruit. Sambar deer have been recorded frequently breaking into the plant nursery at Maliau to eat young Belian seedlings. See the article below.
