Antara Fauna yang terdapat disini (Salin Tampal dari Internet)
Malayan Sambar Deer (Cervus unicolor equinus)Malayan Sambar Deer (Cervus unicolor equinus)The spacious wildlife oasis with lush green surroundings and huge shady trees is just perfect for the Sambar deers, seen roaming unrestrained and appeared so at home, as if in their own natural habitat. The Malayan subspecies of sambar is the smallest in body and antler size as compared with the Indian Sambar Deer or the Sri Lankan ones that are rated as the largest in the genus ‘Cervus’.
What a pity that we missed out on the Timor Deers and Mousedeers, being unaware then of their existence at the wildlife reserve.

Malayan Gaur (Bos Gaurus hubbacki)This extensive wildlife reserve is also a sanctuary for the endangered Malayan Gaur, the largest species of cattle, bigger than the Cape Buffalo, water buffalo and bison. Malayan Gaur or Seladang in Malay, is the smallest among the 3 subspecies of gaur that includes the Southeast Asian Gaur (Bos gaurus laosiensis) and the Indian Bison (Bos gaurus gaurus).
We were advised by one of the staff not to get too close as these huge and gigantic animals can be easily agitated with unfamiliar scent and faces. They looked threatening, no doubt about that. But, being properly contained within iron fences, we were a little brave to move close enough to marvel and enjoy them! Looking like water buffalo in front and like the domestic cattle at the back, they appear menacingly powerful with a highly muscular body and a pair of horns at both sides of the head. Both sexes have these horns that curve upwards and bend inward and slightly backward at the tips. The bulls are substantially larger in size than the cows.

Pheasants and HornbillsThis area was quite a disappointment as the huge cages that housed these beauties are covered with tightly spaced wire-netting materials that not only hinder proper viewing but photography too. Rather frustrating as we were unable to enjoy the full beauty of these birds and have clear shots of them.
Pheasant species seen there include the following:
  • Great Argus (Argusianus argus; Kuang Raya in Malay)
  • Malaysian Peacock (Polyplectron malacense; Merak Pongsu)
  • Mountain Peacock (Polyplectron inopinatium; Kuang Cermin)
  • Crestless Fireback (Lophura erythrophthalma; Merah Mata)
  • Crested Fireback (Lophura ignita; Pegar)
  • Green Peafowl (Pavo muticus; Merak Hijau)
The Great Argus (Argusianus argus), was such a delight to watch. Frequently opening its beautiful and fabulously patterned wings to show off, as if displaying specially for us. Simply lovely!
This pheasant is large, measuring up to 2 m in length, with long tail feathers and secondary wing feathers that are distinctly decorated with large eye-spots. Plumage generally rusty brown with intricate pattern and spots of chestnut, brown, white, black and grey. It has a small head with blue bare skin on its head and neck, short black crest, rufous red upper breast and red legs.
