There are also 53 confirmed bird species including the wreathed and great hornbills. "In the deep pools of Khao Chamao waterfall is found a species of carp (tor soro) which old timers in the area claim gave the Khao Chamao, which translates to get drunk its name. They say people who eat the fish become light headed. A favourite food of the carp is the fallen fruit of a particular tree growing beside the waterfall. This fruit apparently has a mysterious property which has no visible effect on the carp but seemingly causes intoxication in people who eat the fish. This fruit, intriguingly, is a traditional curative for leprosy." (Gray, Piprell, Graham 1994)
