5 Top Countries for Wildlife Spotting (Slideshow)

 

5. Borneo

Borneo is home to three countries and one of the oldest rain forests on the planet. As you might expect, the island is one of the most ecologically diverse on the planet, and is home to thousands of plant and animal species that can be found nowhere else. You’ll find some big mammals — apes, elephants and rhinos, to name a few, along with flying squirrels, slow lorises and dozens more. Borneo is so rich in wildlife, in fact, that about 3 species are discovered there every month!
