Flame Gold-rain Tree — The insects’ favorite fruit juice bar
At the Taipei Zoo, aside from seeing insects in the Insectarium, tourists can also view many insects on the branches of the Flame Gold-rain Tree. Every day there are different kinds of insects that visit the “Flame Gold-rain Tree Restaurant,” which gives you a pleasant surprise.
In Taiwan, the Flame Gold-rain Tree can be seen on the sides of roads. Whenever its branches are damaged, sap will flow out, which attracts many insects to come and feed on it. In the zoo, commonly seen insects include stag beetles, june beetles, butterflies, wasps, flies, ants, and occasionally longhorn beetles and rhinoceros beetles, and other beetles, which come to feed on the tree.
