WILDLIFE -- Home to Richly Colored Birds: Terraced Rice Paddies of Bali

Thousands of beautiful terraced rice paddies line the base of Mount Agung, the highest mountain in Bali, Indonesia. It's a truly breathtaking scene. Because of the abundance of water, rice can be harvested three times a year here. These rice paddies are also an oasis for a wide variety of living creatures. In fact, there are more than 10 species of frogs found here. Gigantic water scorpions and the vividly hued Javan kingfisher routinely prey on these frogs. In this mystical and mysterious tropical island, the magnificent natural beauty of the rice paddies is brought to life.
