Malaysia - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Malaysia is located on a peninsula in Southeast Asia. A peninsula is a piece of land with water on three sides. The Malaysian peninsula is surrounded by the South China Sea. A very big part of Malaysia is situated on another piece of land--the island of Borneo. Malaysia shares Borneo with other countries--Indonesia and Brunei.
 
2     Most of Malaysia is covered with jungles. Lots of wild and amazing animals are at home in Malaysia. There you can find elephants, rhinoceroses, tigers, leopards, and orangutans. But Malaysia is not famous for its animals. Malaysia is famous for something strange. It is something you probably never heard of before. Rubber plants! In fact, there are more rubber plants in Malaysia than almost anywhere else in the world.
 
3     So what are rubber plants? Are they trees or bushes that bend and pull and stretch like a piece of gum? Do leaves from rubber plants bounce? No. Rubber plants--also called rubber trees--don't look very different from some small trees you've seen. Even though their leaves are thick and tough, they don't bounce. So how does a rubber plant become rubber?
