Dangerous Creatures of the Philippines
« on: June 12, 2008, 09:37:35 PM »
Since we are all going to be faced with one or more challenges from the flora and fauna indigenous to the Philippines, I felt it was time we put together a topic for Dangerous Creatures of the Philippines and Survival Techniques.

This is a serious subject so please everyone consider the topic and what we are trying to accomplish in this topic.  Jokes about your mother in law or asawa being a dangerous creature belong in the joke section, not here. 

Please help me keep this free of off topic posts so that we can offer substance and not nonsense.  Please make sure all links function before you post them.  We will be updating/editing this topic and the posts contained herein.  If anyone finds a post they feel is not appropriate, please contact the moderators.

Thank you for your understanding and your participation.
