06 April … F for flora and fauna

for flora and fauna

These flora and fauna are indigenously found in Southeast Asia which includes the islands. The sweet smelling sampaguita (jasminum sambac) is our national flower.  Although my photo here shows its floral buds tediously threaded to make lei, it still exudes the sweetest of fragrance.

floralThe tarsier (haplorrhine primates) is the smallest primate in the world found in the province of Bohol which is south of Manila. It is a nocturnal animal but because of the tourist influx in this part of the island and wanting so much to see these adorable little “cuteness”, the tarsiers are made to stay awake to grant a whim at its sad expense.
