Flora & Fauna


Hiding in the very dense vegetation are the wild ox, gaur (dark in color apart from white ankle socks), sambar deer, barking deer, mouse deer (not much larger than a rabbit), wild boars, Malayan tapirs (related to horses and rhinos but more pig-like in appearance), clouded leopards, leopard cats,  tigers, sun bears (these feed on fruit, honey, termites.), Sumatran rhinoceros, civets, Asian elephants (smaller ears and more hump-backed than African elephants), bats, nocturnal civets (these often beg for food from tourists), squirrel, tree show, a wide variety of primates, vast numbers of reptiles and amphibians, and 250-300 species of birds.





The list of wild animals in the National Park is endless. However, the possibility of not seeing anything exciting in a week besides mosquitoes, leeches and steaming piles of elephant dung is common. It is the matter of luck and timing to spot the wildlife here. There are six wildlife hide-outs for nature lovers, built around the many salt-licks.





Crawling beneath the leaves, in the underground or in rotten tree trunks, bug lovers will find a huge diversity of millions of tropical insects here.




Commonly seen butterfly species are Five-bar Swordtail, which congregate at areas such as campsites, banks of streams, or along paths where foodstuffs have been dropped. Perhaps the most common insects are the ants and termites. The Giant forest ant, Camponotus gigas, is a rather solitary species which prefers to scavenge the forest floor. Some specimens can reach over two inches in length, but despite their huge size they are harmless and will not bite humans.



Termites and ants form extensive colonies and if you take a closer look, you can witness millions of busy termites on the forest floor digesting rotten wood, returning the nutrients to the soil; thus serving as an important species of the rainforest ecology.  Without them, the forests would not survive for each new tree needs the nutrients of the fallen ones.




When the sun goes down, you will be entertained by the wildlife orchestra, the hooting of the owls and the reverberating call of the crickets, such as the Oriental Mole Cricket that inhabit burrows.
