    Default Philippine Species of Endemic Fauna •(Philippine_SoEFa)•




    Objectives:
    -To know what species of animals found throughout the islands of the Philippine Archipelago.
    -To know different species of birds, animals, fishes, reptiles, amphibians and inveretebrates that are only found or migrated(birds) in the philippines; does not include feral and invasive animals. May include intoduced fauna in the wild, but not the domesticated ones, as long as it's not invasive and not feral.
    -To help gather info about the taxonomy of species.
    -To help taxonomist and biologist in their search, so that in return we may learn from them as well.
    -To be aware of the existence of endangered fauna to help it's propagation; can be discussed in this thread.
    -To promote humane relationship to these animals.
    -To be aware of their threatening defensive mechanisms.
    -To help authorities catch poachers and illegal traders.
    -To give knowledge to eager minds.
    -To accept the fact that "we" are part of "their" ecosystem.

    Crocodile #1 : Philippine Crocodile

    com.name : also known as the Mindoro crocodile and the Philippine freshwater crocodile
    sci.name : Crocodylus mindorensis
    classification : Reptiles
    family : Crocodiles
    location or Origin : 1st discovered in mindoro (hence the sci.name) but it can be found all throughout the Luzon and some parts in Visayas.
    description :The Philippine crocodile (Crocodylus mindorensis) is a crocodile found only in the Philippines. It is also known as the Mindoro crocodile and the Philippine freshwater crocodile.

    Status : Critically endangered

    Agamid #1 : Philippine Sail-Fin Lizard




    com.name : Philippine Sail-Fin Lizard, Jesus Christ Lizard, Ibid
    sci.name : Hydrosaurus pustulatus
    classification : Reptile
    family : Sail-Fin lizard
    location or Origin: These lizards are found in the Philippine provinces particularly, Leyte, Negros, Panay Islands, Samar and other nearby provinces. Also found in the remote places of Cebu and Bohol.
    description : The Sailfin lizard is an excellent swimmer and has flattened toes that enable it to run across water. It is omnivorous, feeding on fruit, leaves, flowers, insects, and small animals. It lives near rivers in the tropical forests of the Philippines. Males have a larger crest on their back than the females.The males also show a very beautiful violet color as they grow older.females are less colorful but are still attractive. The Philippine Sailfin Lizard lives mainly beside water e.g. rivers, riverbanks, ricefields etc. as these lizards love to swim. The adults may reach up to a meter in length.
    status: Vulnerable
    reference :
    Sailfin lizard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Skink #1 : Philippine Crocodile Skink



    com.name : Gray's water skink
    sci.name : Tropidophorus Grayi
    classification : Reptile
    family : Skink
    location or Origin:Rivers and Lakes of the Philippines
    description : A highly secretive lizard. It is relatively common, but it is so hard to find that it is a rarely seen. They live by rivers and lakes, which gives them their name the 'water' skink. They are found only in the Philippines. Despite the warm habitat in the Philippines, they prefer relatively cool climates in the mountains. They are part of the Scincidae family or skinks which are a type of lizard
    They have serrated scales (very spiky) which are grey-black in color. This makes them look like miniature crocodiles. They are fast and agile, but despite their looks and speed are harmless.
    When they are threatened by predators this reptile hides in water. This shyness may be one of the reasons why so little is known about them. This aquatic behavior raises some questions to whether it is amphibious or not.

    Raptor #1 : Philippine Eagle



    com.name : Philippine Monkey-Eating eagle, Haribon, Haring Ibon
    sci.name : Pithecophaga jefferyi
    classification : Bird
    family : Raptors (birds of prey)
    location or Origin: once abundant, it is now scattered in remote places in the Philippines; Davao populations are recorded mainly, but populations include Luzon and Visayan regions.
    description : The Philippine Eagle's nape is adorned with long brown feathers that form a shaggy crest. These feathers give it the appearance of possessing a lion's mane, which in turn resembles the mythical gryphon. The eagle has a dark face and a creamy-brown nape and crown. The back of the Philippine Eagle is dark brown, while the underside and underwings are white. The heavy legs are yellow with large, powerful dark claws, and the prominent large, high-arched, deep beak is a bluish-gray. The eagle's eyes are blue-gray. Juveniles are similar to adults except that their upperpart feathers have pale fringes.
    status: Critically Endangered

    Deer #1 : visayan spotted deer

    common name
    : visayan spotted deer
    scientific name:cervus rusa alredi
    classification: mammal
    family: deers
    location/origin: visayan islands of panay and negros though it once roamed other islands such as cebu, guimaras, leyte masbate and samar.
    description: It is one of three endemic deer species in the philippines, although it was not recognized as a separate species until 1983. An estimated 2,500 mature individuals survived worldwide as of 1996, according to the IUCN, although it is uncertain of how many of them still survive in the wild. The diet of the deer, which consists of a variety of different types of grasses, leaves, and buds within the forest, is the primary indicator of its habitat. Since 1991, the range of the species has severely decreased and is now almost co-extensive with that of the visayan warty pig. In April 2009, a team of british, filipino and irish scientists discovered evidence of two herds, consisting of an estimated 300 animals, surviving on the island of negros. Conservation efforts are currently underway with the intention of preserving the remaining population of the species.
