Borneo lowland rain forests

WWF Abstract

Step into the lowland forests of Borneo and you'll soon realize that you're in one of the richest rain forests in the world. Here you'll find some amazing contrasts: the world's smallest squirrel--the chipmunk-sized pygmy squirrel--and Asia's largest land mammal, the Asian elephant. You may see endangered orangutans swinging through the trees and Sumatran rhinos wallowing in mud holes. And if you notice a strong odor that smells like rotten meat, youÂ’ve probably come across the flower of a plant called Rafflesia arnoldii. At more than 3 feet (~1 m) in diameter, this is the world's largest flower.
