Vietnam » Ninh Binh » CUC PHOUNG NATIONAL PARK
Is one of Vietnam's most important nature preserves. Though wildlife has suffered a precipitous decline in Vietnam in recent decades, the park's 222 sq km of primary tropical forest remain home to an amazing variety of wildlife, including 1967 species of flora from 217 families and 749 genera with some trees of the Parashorea and Dracontomelum families reach 1,000 years of age and from 50m to 70m in high, 1800 species of insects from 30 orders and 200 families, 137 species of birds, 64 species of animals and 33 species of reptiles. Among the extraordinary variety of life forms in the park are several species discovered here, including a tree know as Bressaopsis Cucphuongensis and the endemic red-bellied squirrel Callosciurus erythrinaceus Cucphuongensis. The Rhesus macaque (Macaca mullata) can sometimes be seen in the forests. In Con Moong cave, one of the park's many grottoes, the stone tools of prehistoric humans have been discovered.
