Photograph shows Nabau, the 'giant snake' lurking in Borneo river. Villagers living along the Baleh river in Borneo fear a 100-foot snake could be lurking in the murky waters. An aerial photograph that appears to show a gigantic snake swimming along the Baleh river has emerged, sparking great concern among local communities. The image has even stumped the New Straits Times newspaper in Kuala Lumpur, which suggested readers decide for themselves.
However, on the banks of the river, villagers are convinced of the massive serpent's existence and have even given it a name, Nabau, after an ancient sea serpent which can transform itself into the shapes of different animals.
