    I never knew till now that roseate cockatoo is called Galah. Interesting. Will try that word in the next WWF game. That hoopoe is very cute in that photo.

    That caterpillar looks interestingly different compared to the ones that I've seen. This is the first time that I've heard about the Binturong and I'm proud that we have it here in PH.

    The moment I saw the words Agama I read it twice, because Agama means religion is my country national language. Now I know that Agama is also a type of lizard, thanks for the information.

    Good Information you mention in your post. Jumping spider sounds so scary to me as i am so scared of spiders otherwise too.

    Haha… Yes, indeed we often forget that these animals/insects whenever we are given the alphabets to think! Earwig is something I relate to most because I often read about them in Enid Blyton books but never knew how it look like!

  7. Sin Yee

    The Jumping Spider looks really colorful. It's nice that you went with the rare animals on the list so we'll learn more.
