All three Cormorants species - Indian, Great and Little, live, hunt and breed in Prek Toal Sanctuary.
The engine-powered paddle boat could only fit five (including the driver & his assistant). Some "scars" from the leave-less overhanging branches, literally gave those of us sitting in the paddle boat a good whipping when the boatman increased the speed of engine through the waterways that got narrower and narrower as we neared the Sanctuary. Paddles and manual boat rowing would have been very welcomed.
The fishing boat above, laden with the catch of the day from Tonle Sap could help explain why Prek Toal is such a popular roosting site for the waterbirds, storks, ibises and cormorants (including the Pelican!).
