Queen Alexandra's Birdwing Butterfly
This extremely rare butterfly is the world’s largest. It can have a wingspan of over 30 centimetres!
Not foxes at all, these are the world’s largest bats. There are over 60 species which all have excellent senses of sight and smell to find the fruit they eat.
The largest of all gibbon species, both males and females have throat sacs which they use to call loudly to one another for up to 15 minutes at a time!
Wallace's Flying Frog
Also known as the ‘Parachute Frog’, this amphibian lives in the trees of the dense rainforests of Malaysia and Borneo. They have oversized toe pads to help them land softly and stick to tree trunks.
Oil Palm Estate Borneo
Oil Palm cultivation is responsible for the clearance of rainforest habitat. At present, 10,000 Orangutans remain in Asian areas currently allocated to oil palm and so are under threat.
Paradise Flying Tree Snake
These snakes glide through the air at speeds of up to 10 metres per second and can travel as far as 100 metres through the air!
Asia’s only great ape now survives just on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. It is under great threat due to the clearing of rainforest there.
During the very hot parts of the day, these birds typically form flocks and gather to bathe in rainforest streams. The flock formation helps to keep them safe from predators.
