I feel like I under appreciate the wild life and biodiversity of my country.
Seriously, last week I discovered that the blue nudibranch and that weird looking eel I see while diving is supposedly really fucking rare. Now I discover the huge ass bat my lolo used to take care of in Guimaras is also rare. WOW.
what other rarities have I been taking for granted??
