Tawau Hill Park is a tropical forest filled with huge insects, some canopy hanging bridges and its home of the tallest tropical tree in the world. I couldn't stop comparing Costa Rica's tropical jungle with this place, they both are very similar, you get the same feeling of being completely surrounded by animals and trees that block the sunlight, the difference lays on the species found in them. I like to think that Cost Ricans plants and animals have their cousins living in Borneo.
The first interesting bug we saw was a wide centipede that is able to become a ball to protect itself, I've never seen a centipede as big and wide as this one.
Then we saw HUGE ants, around an inch long, they had red back. I can only imagine how painful getting bitten by one of those things can be. And right after that, we saw a river of small ants, I guess they were moving the entire colony to another location because they were too many moving at the same time. Here is a video:
Walking on the trail, starting the rout to go to see the tallest tropical tree in the world, we say a brown reddish monkey jumping right in front of us, I still don't know what species it was, but sure it looked like nothing I have seen before. After some taking some pictures, I continued in search for the tree.
