Real flying dragon?

By Kim Atienza

We always hear that the Philippines is home to the Center of Marine Biodiversity in the world, and that such center is located near Verde Island Passage in Batangas.

What exactly does this mean? Ac­cording to an investigative report by CNN, this spot has “nearly 60% of the world’s known shore fish, as well as over 300 species of coral.”

A closer look in the islands will re­veal rich flora and fauna with over 7, 492 species of plants, birds, amphib­ians, reptiles and mammals.

Alongside this rich biodi­versity are national treasures with out-of-this-world quali­ties that can only be found in the Philippines.

According to topten.ph, an online trivia site, there are re­cently discovered bizarre crea­tures in the country, among them Flying Dragons.

Sorry, Daenerys fans, con­trary to the typical ferocious fire-breathing dragons, these creatures are small lizards that feed on insects. And they actually don’t fly. Rather, they glide in the air using their elongated ribs.

TRIVIA PA MORE(Various Sources):

It took the creator of the Rubik’s Cube, Erno Rubik, one month to solve the cube after he created it. The last world record is 5.55 seconds.

Japanese square water­melons are ornamental plants and are not edible.

Tigers have striped skin not just striped fur. The stripes are like fingerprints and no two ti­gers have the same pattern.

In Morse Code -.- means k.

If you die in Amsterdam with no next of kin, and no friends or family to prepare funeral or mourn over the body, a poet will write a poem for you and recite it at your funeral.
