When I still studying in school. I ever go to forest and make a little experience. But only observe the shape of leaves. So I and my group fellow collect a several leaves and draw it in our drawing book and write the characteristic. It's so interest us and I thing i will like to do it again. But or the wild life, I haven't do it. It's a dangerous experience and need a professional guide. So sorry, I can share much experince with you. Keep post Happy myLotting....

Hi, thanks for sharing your experience. i myself a botany student and one of my hobby is to observe various plant and their. I too used to walk through forest with group of friends. We managed to spot some occasional rabbits and deers. The only scary experience was encountering a snake on our path. T Hough it was a small snake and looked quite harmless we were panicked because we encountered it in the wild setup. Once again thanks

I have been to Subic, Philippines and they have a Safari tour. It was a very wonderful experience. Before the wild life safari tour, there was tour in their preserved forest area where they taught us how to "survive in the wilderness". Thanks for the response on my discussion!

It's quite hard to describe it in words - which is probably why they SHOWED it to us instead of DISCUSSED it with us during the tour:) They showed us how to start fire based on the stuff we can see lying on the ground. Then they showed us how to cook rice using a thick bamboo stick and how to cook sour soup (of chicken or fish), also by using a think bamboo stick. Then they taught us about some trees and plants that may be dangerous - like this tree that has thorns on the bark and which you have to carefully dust off your palm if you touch it. Our native tour guide showed us that the normally just brush it off their head because their hair feels rough and it's a good counter part (but I failed to see how that would help US because we didn't have the same hair haha)
