Okay! After giving some ideas about how cool and beautiful the PACEM Eco park is. Here are some pictures of living things that can only found in (of course) Philippines! :)

This are pictures of animals that can only found in the Philippines. :)

I will explain them starting from the eagle to the whale shark.

First is The MONKEY-EATING EAGLE (Pithecophaga jefferyi) is also known as the Great Philippine eagle and Haribon. It is indigenous to the country and is considered to be critically endangered with less than 500 birds believed to be surviving in the islands of Luzon, Samar, Leyte and Mindanao.The bird is characterized by its shaggy crest, which lends it an appearance similar to a lion or a griffin, and its size - 3.36 ft long, weight of about 7 kg and a wingspan of approximately 2 meters. It's a brave looking eagle. It's like when you look at it, it will eat you. That kind of brave look.

Second is The PILANDOK  (philippine mouse-deer) contrary to common belief is not of the deer family but is a member of the chevrotain (French of "little goat"). Pilandoks are only found in Balabac island in the Philippine province of Palawan. They are nocturnal creatures that feed on plants. And unlike the deer, the males of the pilandok do not grow antlers but instead use canine teeth for self-defense.The pilandok is considered the world's smallest hoofed mammal. It's so small hat's why its called the Philippine mouse deer.

Third is The FLYING LEMUR (kagwang) It is one of the most distinct creatures on Earth lives in the Philippines. It doesn't have wings but it can glide across 100 meters of space in a single leap. Like the lemurs of Asia, it moves around at night. Its head resembles that of a dog while its body has similarities with the flying squirrel of Canada. In Mindanao, people call it "kagwang". Around the world, it is known as colugo or the flying lemur. I want to see such thing in person. It's cool because they can fly 100 meters of space in a single leap without wings. Looking forward to see one :D

Fourth is The Palawan bearcat (binturong) It is neither a bear nor a cat. The bearcat is a species of its own, with population in the forests of Palawan, Borneo, Burma and Vietnam. It belongs to the family of Viverridae (civets). The Palawan bearcat has a long body and a pointed face leading to the nose. Its head and body measure 61 to 96 centimeters in combined length while its tail is almost as long. It weighs 9 to 14 kilograms and lives up to 20 years. It's a huge animal i think. It's like, it's so heavy when you old it but fluffy at the same time :>

Fifth is TheKalangay (Philippine cockatoo or red-vented cockatoo) Another species ancient to the Philippines. This bird, considered to be one of the most exotic in the world, is distinguishable from other cockatoos by the red feathers around the vent, the pale yellow underwings and undertails and is generally quieter.The kalangays have a wingspan of at least 9 inches and can grow up to 12 inches in length (beak to tail). They are also known to mimic human voices and are considered to be ideal pets due to their sociability and no-fuss eating habits. for me, This animal is so beautiful. It's like when you see it, it is the only one kind of bird in the world. It's so beautiful beacuse of its colors. "t's so unique. I love it! :}

Sixth is The CALAMIAN DEER - In Calamian Islands, north of Palawan province, keep a species of deer that cannot be found elsewhere. Scientists referred to the hog deer in the islands as Calamian deer in order to distinguish them from other hog deer in the world. An ordinary Calamian deer measures 105 to 115 centimeters in length and 60 to 65 centimeters high at the shoulder and weighs about 36 to 50 kilograms. It is said to have longer and darker legs, compared with other hog deer. It's a deer! I love deers! They run like their so light. Hahaha :))

Seventh is The TAMARAW (Bubalus mindorensis) Found only in the island of Mindoro (Western Philippines, near the island of Luzon), is a species of the buffalo but is not a subspecies (although similar in appearance) of the carabao and the water buffalo. Also called the dwarf buffalo, the tamaraw is considered to be the largest native terrestrial mammal in the country.The tamaraw is distinguished from the carabao and the water buffalo by the light markings on the sides of its face, more hair and shorter horns which form a distinctive V shape. For me, it's a scary animal. It has a pointed horns. It can kill you if you make fun of them by putting their horns in your body. I can't imagine how painful is that. They are not cool. >:)

Eighth is The TARSIER cute little tarsier :) (philippine tarsier) It is the common name for any of the four species of primates found in Indonesia, Borneo and the Philippines. Tarsiers are smaller than full grown rats and have soft, furry bodies and thin limbs for leaping. Their most conspicuous feature however are their enormous goggle-like eyes. They are arboreal and mostly eat insects and lizards at night. It is mostly found in Bohol, an island in the Visayas region. Yay! Cute little tarsierss :) They are so fluffy. I want to hold them. I want to have a pet tarsier. That are so cute! ^^

Nineth is The TOBIAS (dwarf pygmy goby) The tobias, or bia, (Pandaka pygmaea) is a tropical freshwater fish considered to be the world's shortest and lightest. Mature males can grow up to 1.1 cm while the females of the species can reach .3 cm longer. It's average weight is from 4 to 5 mg. The species are almost colorless and can be described as nearly transparent and are found in the streams, lakes and shady riverbanks in various parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila. Like the monkey-eating eagle, the tabios is indigenous to the Philippines. COOOL! That is the word to describe them. Cool! they are so small. And nearly transparent. I want to see one of this in person also! :]

Tenth is The WHALE SHARK (Butanding) regularly swims to the Philippine waters. Donsol, a fishing town in Sorsogon province, serves as a sanctuary to a group of 40 whale sharks, which are considered as the largest fish in the world. Locally known as "Butanding", whale sharks visit the waters of Donsol from November to May. They travel across the oceans but nowhere else have they been sighted in a larger group than in the waters of Sorsogon. They measure between 18 to 35 feet in length and weigh about 20 tons. This whale is different from others. it has a polkadots skin. And it really big. I can't imagine swimming with them. awesome! :)

And this are the explanations and definitons of the animals if you still don't know them. hope you learned something :)

Staggering Cute Animalsss :)

Pictures of herbs that can only found here in the Philippines..

This are the uses and explanations of the herbs :)))

First, is the ALAGAU. It is a tree that is only found in the Philippines. It grows wild in many other places in the Philippines. For many years now, Alagau has been considered a drug in the Philippines, being used to loosen phlegm and relieve coughs. It is also claimed to benefit tuberculosis and headaches. Alagau is one of the great medicinal herbs of the Philippines.

Second, is the BANABA. It has the ability to reduce blood sugar, and its "insulin-like principle." Here, in the Philippines, Banaba is a popular medicine plant and is used in treatment of diabetes mellitus. It is high in corosolic acid which is used in many treatments for diabetes. It is a natural plant insulin, can be taken orally, and has no side effects, according to Japanese research.

Third, is the LAGUNDI. It is a common medicine shrub in the Philippines. The use of Lagundi for medicinal purposes has a long history in the Philippines. Today, pharmaceutical companies sell it in capsule form at drug stores. The root is reported to be tonic. The root is also used in a great variety of diseases like dyspepsia, worms, boils, and leprosy. The flowers are used in diarrhea, cholera, fever, and diseases of the liver, and are also recommended as a cardiac tonic. The seeds make a cooling medicine for skin diseases and leprosy, and for inflammation of the mouth. The leaves are reported to be used for coughs and asthma.

Forth, is the MAKAHIYA. Itis found throughout the Philippines and is found wild everywhere on Mt. Banahaw. It is not cultivated, and is considered a weed. The Tagalog name, and suggested by the scientific name, means "sensitive." The reason it is given this name is that upon human touch the leaves contract and appear to wilt, but then open up again a short time later. Makahiya is considered as antiasthmatic. It is used for urinary complaints, and is useful in diseases arising from corrupt blood and bile.

Fifth, is the MALUNGGAY. It is a tree found throughout the Philippines, including Mt. Banahaw. It is a common vegetable found in the market. They are a rich source of calcium and iron. The leaves are purgative, and diuretic.

Sixth, is the SUGANDA. It is called "oregano" here in the Philippines, it is an herb cultivated mostly in peoples gardens. It is well-known on Mt. Banahaw, and thrives in the soil and climate there. When you ask people locally here why they grow it, they will universally claim that it is effective in relieving coughs, especially in children. The leaves are also used externally to relieve pain.
Seventh, is the DUMERO. It is cultivated in some places in the Philippines. Dumero is reported to fight bacteria, relax the stomach, stimulate circulation and digestion, act as an astringent and decongestant, and improve circulation to the brain. It is reported to help prevent liver toxicity, and have anticancer and antitumor properties.

Eighth, is the HIERBABUENA. It is cultivated throughout the Philippines, although it does well at higher altitudes. This mint is known as a remedy for weakness of the stomach and for diarrhea. It is valuable as an antiseptic, and has been used in alcohol solutions for asthma.

Ninth, is the CACAO. It is a fruit tree cultivated throughout the Philippines. It is most known for the seeds of its fruit, which is used to manufacture cacao, chocolate, cacao butter, etc. We use the pulpy flesh of the fruit in our Digestive Enzyme tincture, because it contains the enzymes protease, and the others.

This are the explanations of the herbs. I didn't know that in the Philippines we have herbs like this. It is so great to have this herbs because herbs are much more effective than medicines we buy in drugstores. If only i know where to buy this herbs, i will definitely buy this for the safety of my health and my family. People should also use herbs rather than buy medicines. Medicines for me are definitely not 100% effective. But herbs, i think it's effective and safe for the children, for the teens and also for the adults. I want to experience some of the herbs so that my body will be healthy. I'm so amazed knowing this herbs. I hope that in the future people will give importance to the herbs rather than spending so much money in medicines. :)
