The Rhinoceros Hornbill

Due to the strategic location of the Brunei rainforests, it acts as a common stop to a slew of migratory birds, including some incredible ones. One of which is the Rhinoceros Hornbill, an endangered hornbill species that inhabits the vast expanse of Ulu Temburong National Park. Found also in Peradayan Recreational Forest and certain areas of Kuala Balai, the distinctive avian is extraordinarily rare and holds a special place in Sarawakian native cultures – being closely associated with the god of war in Iban legends and folklore.
