>>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.

Dear Tsuh Yang Chen,
Good to hear from you.   It would be interesting to find out why he used the
name of this rare and unique animal as his e-mail address!  Was he in some
way connected with research into them???   Or does he just admire them as I
do???
Cheers,
Julius
