Animal of the day – 12/22/2010 – The Kinabalu Giant Red Leech

Giant Red Leech

The animal of the day is the Kinabalu Giant Red Leech. (Did you know: They only feed on the Giant Earthworms, so don’t be afraid of these guys!

This is all giant leeches eat!

Both of these species only live in the mountains of Borneo! Sorry for the lack of more info, but here’s a video!

  1. in 01 Jan 2013 I found this creature (giant red leech) at mount leuser track Gunung Leuser National Park, we have the pictures and the position on GPS. I think this is not endemic of kinabalu, you can see the picture at gunungleuser.or.id
