Listen to and view wildlife on Mt Salak
These are some of the other mammals that have been seen at Vila Botani.
Wild Boar
The Wild Boar or Sus Scrofa, is believed to have originated in the islands of Southeast Asia and continues to live wild areas of Indonesia.

The wild boar is a highly versatile omnivore. Its foods are: Nuts, berries, seeds, leaves, bark, twigs, and shoots, along with garbage.Also, earthworms, insects, fish, rodents, bird eggs, lizards, snakes, frogs, and carrion. Roots, tubers and bulbs are also dug up and can be damaging to agriculture.

Wild boar live in the forest but appear in nearby cropped areas at night, where they feed, dig and overturn plants, much to farmers’ annoyance. The boar often appear by night in the upper sections of Vila Botani, where they dig up the ground under the grass, looking for worms.
Slender Squirrel
The Slender Squirrel (Sundasciurus tenuis) is a species of rodent found all over Indonesia, and some neighboring countries. The fur is light grey. The body measures about 13-16 cm, with a slightly shorter slender tail. It feeds on soft bark, fruits and insects.
Civet (musang)
The civet (musang) is nocturnal. The Asian palm civet is small, mottled gray and black with a 19 inch long tail. Its long, stocky body is covered with coarse, shaggy hair that is usually grayish in color. Their sharp claws allow them to climb trees and house gutters. The civet is well known for its habit of harvesting ripe, cherry-red coffee beans by swallowing them and later excreting them intact in its feces. The beans are collected by farmers, cleaned, and sold at a high price, as they are much in demand. One observer praised the low-key, full-bodied, earthy taste of the coffee.
Ganggarang Civet
Ganggarang civets are diurnal day feeders.
Mouse Deer
Mouse Deer is the favorite trickster of Indonesia and Malaysia. But what is a mouse deer? It is an animal that lacks horns, has elongated canine teeth, is about the size of a cat, and lives in the jungles of Mt. Salak. It has the legs and the tail of a deer, with the face and the body of a mouse but it is not really a mouse or a deer.

The mouse deer eats only plants, but lots of animals eat the mouse deer. To stay alive, it must be quick and smart. That is why the Indonesians have made Mouse Deer their favorite trickster.
Barking Deer
Barking deer and Bornean red muntjac are small deer (Muntiacus). Muntjacs are the oldest known deer, thought to have begun appearing 15–35 million years ago. These animals are incredibly alert and get their name from the barking alarm call made when threatened. The body length of muntjacs varies from 35-53 inches long and their height ranges from 15-26 inches tall. Males have short, unbranched antlers which grow from a bony stalk on the top of the head to about 15 centimeters (5.9 in) in length and can re-grow. They are extremely territorial and despite their diminutive size can be quite fierce. The males will fight each other for territory using their antlers or their (more dangerous) tusk-like upper canine teeth, and can even defend themselves against certain predators such as dogs.
Javan Leopard
Some Javan leopards have spotted coats while others have a coat of solid color (a recessive phenotype resulting in an all black coat). Their prey comprises barking deer, wild pig, Java mouse-deer and monkeys such as crab-eating macaque, silvery lutung, and Javan gibbon. Javan leopards will also look for food in close by villages and have been known to prey on domestic dogs, chickens, and goats. There have been like visitations once every 17 years at or near Vila Botani.
Indonesian Anteater
The Indonesian Anteater or Pangolin has the appearance of a walking pinecone crossed with an anteater due to the large keratin scales that cover their skin. The natural habitat of pangolins are throughout tropical regions in Asia where their meat is viewed as a delicacy and their scales are believed to hold medicinal properties. When they feel threatened, they can roll up into a ball similar to an armadillo. Pangolins are actually quite near sighted so they rely on their hearing and their very good sense of smell to track down their insects for feeding. Their tongues are similar to anteaters which they use to gather ants or termites. They also come equipped with a gland that creates a foul smell, similar to a skunk although they can’t spray.
