When the Birds are happy – Strangler figs fruiting
When we watch some horror movie sometimes we see the villain straggle to kill the victim that is normal in the animal kingdom prey deadly bite to suffocate is normal.
There is a tree that can strangle another tree example is the Stranger fig tree. JohnsonMalaysia.com normally explains about how the fig, strangles.
My story today is not on, tree killing a tree, but how the straggler fig fees other animals in the forest. You see, this month May is the fruiting season for the strangler fig in Malaysia. Though we can get the figs at others time of the years, but there is time with heavy fruiting. This type of fig is as big as small marble (Guli size). This morning when I brought a group of local tourist from a Buddhist association johnsonmalaysia.com explained about the nature of the tree.
The fruit is dropping from the tree and the birds are joyfully eating them like a party for them and chirping sound was the dearest for our ears from the birds, thanking CHRIST for the blessings. That reminds me of how the birds never worry about their food supply. They fly out every day and find food. The photo shows the abundance of fruit on the floor.
There are about 900 species of fig in the entire world, ranging from small to big. This is only one species of them. The unique circle of the fruit in relation to a bug call wasp is very interesting. I recommend you to watch YouTube about the relationship between the fig fruit with wasps. That makes to realise how great GOD is in HIS design and creation.
