At Madre Selva I came upon 15-20 of these grubbing around some of our nets. While extracting a bird, armpit exposed, I first I thought I was overly smelly that day, but then I began to hear rustling in the leaves all around me. After creeping around a bit I got a glimpse of a couple, then they got a glimpse of me and startled as a herd and each ran about 10 meters away from me, with a few aggressive snorts, scaring me into a run up the hill. I later found them again with my camera, and though I did not get any great shots, if it weren't for their great stench I would never have found them again.
