"Leeches" Temengor Warnings Or Dangers Tip by AngMimi

Temengor Warnings and Dangers: 4 reviews and 15 photos


There will be outing to the waterfall or jungle trekking, so I must warn you of the leeches in the rainforest..They are two types of leeches in the jungle, the one I had near my ankle, i let it suck for 15minutes, just to see how this blood sucker get fat.. after that I took a small leave and pull the leech off my skin.. Do not put salt or trying to burn them with lighter, it will give out whatever toxic.. anyway Im a not a scientist so I dont know how to explain more..
So pull it and ask the leech to sit on naughty steps..;-)))

My cousin got 3 leeches each on both legs, oh no, hers was a nasty ones, so much blood..I dare not take a picture of it... I just knew my cousin, so I dare not simply take her pictures..hehe..
