New Lizard Species in the Philippines
Thursday, April 22, 2010
Wow just wow! I was really amazed at what was actually found in the Sierra Madre Mountains in the island of Luzon. This is actually just like the Komodo Dragon that is found in Indonesia but the difference is... it doesn't eat meat or dead carcasses, it eats fruits and veggies. Some sort of a vegetarian dragon hahah.
The Komodo lives on volcano slopes and finds dead things to eat but this one chooses to be healthy and slim. Although I don't know why in the world it is about 6.5 feet in length.. taller than I am HUWAAAAT!!!
Numbers of these species is unknown and the Philippines has no data about it. This just got filed in France and they said it is very endangered. People in that area actually consume this for their food, they might lose this one forever if some sort of conservation plans do not step in. I'm sure these are the ones who bite and crawl if attacked so make sure we all make an effort to protect it while protecting ourselves. Please do not eat BAYAWAK anymore for cryin out loud! We are not cavemen!
