Description: With a short and powerful blast of air, Jak's poison dart hits its target with deadly accuracy. Penans use blowpipes to hunt a variety of small mammals, reptiles and birds for food. Apart from fish, it is their only other source of dietary protein. Penans never hunt animals which cannot be eaten and take only what they need. It is an 'adat' or custom called 'molong', passed down by their ancestors which they strictly observe until this day.
