This stand of trees covers a couple of kilometers of roadway in thick mahogany forest. It’s noticeable in that it seems out-of-place, and because the trees are of preternaturally uniform size. Apparently, the natural growth was destroyed and they planted the mahogany trees for something new. The forest is in the area of the villages of Bilar and Loboc on Bohol Island along the drive to one of the Tarsier sanctuaries and the Chocolate Hills.

 

There were lots of these crawlers present.

It wasn’t dry enough to see them in their full chocolatey brown glory, but these conical limestone hills are pretty wild nevertheless.

Tarsiers may be the product of a five-way orgy between an owl (eyes), a bat (ears), a frog (hands), a rat (tail), and a monkey (body), but they’re still pretty cute.
