A female Bushy-crested Hornbill carries away a large ripe fig fruit of Ficus subcordata to a nearby feeding perch where she can toss the fig in the air and swallow it whole.
Hornbills and canopy strangling figs have a very close relationship in the forests of Borneo. Neither can survive without the other. Hornbills disperse the largest figs and rely on them for a large proportion of their diet.
