I am watching a show on Nat Geo about the Philippines and, learned a few things, the Philippines national bird is the Philippines Eagle, it's a very beautiful and, unique bird, he only lives on 4 Islands there, the Philippines also has over 7 thousand tropical Islands, 24 Volcano's an amazing reef system and, animals like Whale, Shark, Crocodiles, Parrots and, of course the famous chocolate hills. I also learned of a delicacy from there the Coconut Crab, it's called that, because it's pincher is strong enough to crack a coconut. What is your favorite thing about the Philippines? Photo is from Wikipedia.

@TRBRocks420 there are a lot of popular dishes in the Philippines. The more popular ones are lechon, sinigang, and adobo. Street food is quite popular and most foreigners are asked to eat balut during their stay here.

The Philippine eagle or Monkey eating eagle is the biggest eagle in the world, it is endangered so for years we had been breeding some of thwm in captivity before they are released in the wild. The coconut crab is also the largest land crab in the world. I like living here, I would not want to live anywhere else permanently, what I like most is the people.

That crab sounds a bit too strong to be tampered with! I didn't know much about the Philippines at all. I know their citizens who work in Australia are all very hard-working.
