On our next stop, we were greeted by another big, flightless bird which is more accomodating (and sometimes too accomodating) than the proud cassowary — the ostrich.

When the ostrich notices that you are taking its picture then without warning it would look straight into your lens, open its big beak and would suddenly lunge towards you in an attempt to bite your camera. This happened to me not a few times.
Enough birds already. Our next stop is the humble Philippine Deer. They are quiet and peaceful creatures as the pix below shows:

Next would be Snakes and Crocs… Stay tuned!
