Re: gigantic leaf species around the world


hi, julius, babirusa does refer to the wild boar of sulawesi, in which
the males's tusks grow up and through their flesh and skin and protrude
out.  from the malay, babi (pig) rusa (deer).

i thought david attenborough said in his book that Alocasia laportei had
the largest non-segmented leaves in the world.
