There are many insects who are generally more active in the night as well so make sure you look out for various types of insects such as spiders, stick insects, grasshoppers and beetles among many others. If you are in luck, you may even catch sight of the unique civet cat (musang) and slow loris as they move among the other animals. While you may be immersed in the whole experience of discovering the abundant flora and fauna in the jungle, do make sure to be cautious as you walk on the pathway as it may be slippery or bumpy in the night.

As you venture further along your adventure, you may be given the opportunity to be in awe by the sight of the breathtaking fireflies that float gracefully in the dark like twinkling stars in the night sky. This lightning bugs emit a warm glow in the dark and are even able to routinely synchronize their flashing lights when they are in large groups, putting on the most beautiful natural light show! However, do be aware that the fireflies are creatures that are sensitive to light so make sure to keep the direction of your torchlights away from them. Moving along on your journey, you might be lucky enough to witness some unique looking fungi that glow in the dark, contrasting with the other greenery in the dark. Apart from this, there are even small durian plantations that can be found in the jungle. Durians are also known as the king of fruits and are very popular in Malaysia, however, if you are a first-timer, you may not be used to the strong odour that the fruit bears.
