The tops of the submarine cliffs are covered with hard coral while lower levels are covered with sponges and gorgonians.

Virgin Island

It is just, by far the most breathtaking beach on earth. Pristine waters and that long curved stretch of powder-like white sand connecting the island, it's simply the best!

The Philippine Tarsier of Bohol

Tarsier sleep with their eyes still wide open. (They have no ability to close their eyes). This one is aleady in deep sleep.
Like all tarsiers, the Philippine Tarsier's eyes are fixed in its skull; they cannot turn in their sockets. Instead, a special adaptation in the neck allows its round head to be rotated 180 degrees. The eyes are disproportionately large, having the largest eye-to-body size ratio of all mammals. These huge eyes provide this nocturnal animal with excellent night vision. The large membranous ears are mobile,  appearing to be almost constantly moving, allowing the tarsier to hear any movement.
