Eumorpha Fig fruit Short fig tree with hard hairy fruits (internally and externally). Leaf are hairy as well with upper surface bumpy and hairy basal. Inside the fruit is full of hairs making it only edible to certain kind of animals. Endemic to Northern Borneo&#039;s mountains only.<br />

Figs are unique as their flowers are grown internally inside the fruits so they need specialized pollinating fig wasps to enter the fruits to pollinate its inner flowers. Borneo have around 150 native fig species and I have already documented around one third of it with 1StopBorneo Wildlife expeditions. Ficus eumorpha,Geotagged,Malaysia,Summer Click/tap to enlarge
