The Philippines are a breeding ground for many rare, beautiful and bizarre animals. The mysterious Bearcat looks like a cross between a bear and a cat as is agile in the trees as a monkey. The Philippines is home to one of the worlds most spectacular cave systems, a subterranean world crowded with bats and mysterious insects. On the island of Bohol, swamp-like mangroves are raided by gangs of macaques with a taste for crabs. The Tarsier comes out to hunt at night an animal so small it fits in the palm of a human hand, but has the largest eyes relative to body size in the animal kingdom.
