|Tabin DRY mud|
Some of the important features of Tabin are its mineral sources including at least three "Mud Volcanoes." Simply put, a mud volcano is a hill (mound) of mud and clay pushed or heaved up through overlying sediments The mud is formed when volcanic (heated) gasses dissolved in hot ground water interact with the igneous rocks a few meters below the surface. A thick and gooey acidic mixture, which varies in water content through the year, is formed. This mixture of mud and clay is continually pushed up and form an elevated cone above the surrounding area about 3m to 12m high. The mud soon dries to a solid, crumbly, rock. At the top of the volcano, mud is continually, though slowly, released and forms a small pool.The rocks, soil and water in the area of the primary mud volcano are highly saline, and the pH is quite alkaline (averaging 8.0) This area serves as a mineral salt lick for many animals including birds. It is perhaps for this reason that such a great diversity of large mammals including elephants, wild cattle (Tembadau), and bearded pigs.
