An immature crab‐eating macaque (Macaca fascicularis), which was sitting on the river bank near the Orangutan Research and Conservation Project base camp in the Tanjung Puting Reserve, Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia, was seized by a crocodile which rapidly emerged from the water and then resubmerged with the monkey in its jaws. As crocodile populations are in a decline throughout Borneo, crocodile predation on crab‐eating macaques was probably more frequent in the past. This predation may have… Expand
Crocodile predation on a proboscis monkey in Borneo
TLDR
This incident helps establish false gavials as important predators on refuging primate populations in southern Borneo and indicates that predation may have influenced the evolution of some behaviors with an antipredator function in both Nasalis and Macaca fascicularis. Expand
Komodo Dragon Predation on Crab-Eating Macaques at the Rinca Island’s Visitor Centre, Indonesia
TLDR
The proportion of crab-eating macaques in the diet of Komodo dragons and the spatial habitat use between the species as a proxy for predation threat and in relation to prey availability due to ecotourism are investigated. Expand
Possible antipredator behavior associated with river crossings by proboscis monkeys (Nasalis larvatus)
TLDR
Proboscis monkeys' river crossing behavior was examined as a potential behavioral response to predation threat, and increased vigilance prior to crossing and leaping as far across the river as possible were observed. Expand
Frugivory and Seed Dispersal by Crocodilians: An Overlooked Form of Saurochory?
TLDR
Although there is no evidence for a crocodilian-specific dispersal syndrome similar to that described for other reptiles, a review of the literature on crocodilian diet, foraging ecology, digestive physiology and movement patterns suggests that crocodilians function as effective agents of seed dispersal.

Riparian vegetation structure and the hunting behavior of adult estuarine crocodiles
TLDR
It is found individual crocodiles were actively selecting overhanging vegetation and that the protrusion of trees from the tree line was key to site selection by crocodiles, as well as influencing both the presence and group size of sleeping macaques. Expand

TLDR
The dismemberment of the Fayum primates by Oligocene predators indicates, in part, why the Fayums fossil material is rarely articulated. Expand
Peat swamp forest and the false gharial Tomistoma schlegelii (Crocodilia, Reptilia) in the Merang River, eastern Sumatra, Indonesia
Abstract Tomistoma schlegelii is a threatened crocodilian whose current range is restricted to Sumatra, Borneo (Kalimantan and Sarawak) and Peninsular Malaysia. During surveys undertaken in easternExpand
Patterns of Water Use in Primates
TLDR
Five major factors appear to most strongly influence primate water use: thermoregulation, display behaviour, range, diet and predation, which has ecological and evolutionary implications for extant primates as well as the possible influence of water on hominin evolution. Expand
Niche partitioning in crocodiles Niche partitioning between juvenile sympatric crocodilians in Mesangat Lake , East Kalimantan , Indonesia
Crocodilians are apex predators and sympatric species are likely to have different ecologies or morphologies in order to minimise competition between species, i.e., niche partitioning. Here, weExpand
OBSERVATION OF A FATAL DOG ATTACK ON A JUVENILE LONG-TAILED MACAQUE IN A HUMAN-MODIFIED ENVIRONMENT IN SINGAPORE
— Direct observations of predation on primates are rare, in part because the presence of observers deters potential predators. We observed domestic dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) kill and take away aExpand
