Not only do they enjoy the fruits, but secure the trees survival by spreading their seed.Thanks for sharing Yrna.

Durian has the most disgusting smell you can imagine! It's the only food I ever put into my mouth and IMMEDIATELY spat out onto the table. Sun bears must have dreadful breath! Orangutans love them, too.
