What is the first vision about alien that will came across your mind when i said about alien? Big Eyes? Green? Skinny? Naked? Well I guess that common characteristics about them anyway (even there is no solid prove at all). Do you guys have seen E.T.(1982) movie by Steven Spielberg. If u don't...*sigh*.

The world smallest monkey, TARSIER (Genus Tarsius). Characteristics? Alien look a like!! Except it came from earth. Their faces are short, and the eyes, are LARGE AND GOGGLING!! They have long legs and tail, short bodies,and a very flexible neck that can turn 360 degrees? With its huge eyes, long tail, and hands and feet, that must have inspired Steven Spielberg when he created ET.

"Come and see real E.T. found only in Philippines"
-Steven Spielberg

This mammal is like 24/7 on tree even while sleeping and giving birth to the young ones. Main food, insect. This animal not exactly a monkey, scientist still don't know how to class this species. This cute and unique species, can only be found on Philippines, Celebes, BORNEO (proud to be SARAWAK people) and Sumatra.
As usual, this species are threatened and endangered species. This animal never formed successful breeding colonies in captivity. Why? Well, tarsier have been known to injure and even kill themselves because of the stress. Never seen it before? Never know about it? Well u know it now.

Any info you want to share?

Tough Insect??

Its been a long time since the last time i update my blog. Its has been a pretty busy week for me.
I got something interesting to tell my reader. Its about COCKROACHES. I know its
a YUCK and SCARY insect for some people, but it is one of the most perfect insect
that has evolve through time. the earliest cockroach like fossils is found around 354-295
million years ago. This insect can survive even the most extreme condition.
I am not gonna babbling about this insect, i just want tell u what really interesting about them and
why they can live in extreme environment.
-Cockroaches leave chemical trails in their feces as well as emitting airborne pheromones for swarming and mating.
Other cockroaches will follow these trails to discover sources of food and water, and also discover where other cockroaches are hiding.
Thus, cockroaches can exhibit emergent behavior, in which group or swarm behavior emerges from a simple set of individual interactions.
-Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal and will run away when exposed to light.
A peculiar exception is the Asian cockroach, which is attracted to light.
-Cockroaches can live without his head. Well, it maybe takes a week or
two until cockroach die because of starving. Cannot eat obviously.
-There are about 4,000 thousand species, and some of it capable of remaining active for a month
without food.
-Some can go without air for more than 45 minutes.
In one experiment, cockroaches were able to recover from being submerged underwater
for half an hour.
NUCLEAR WAR. Maybe some already hear this phrases, its kinda true though.
Cockroaches do indeed have a much higher radiation resistance than vertebrates, with the lethal dose
perhaps 6 to 15 times that for humans. However, they are not exceptionally radiation-resistant compared to other insects,
such as the fruit fly.

Want to know more?????? Internet is a bank of data, find it yourself, huahahaha. Oh,if u guys got Something interesting facts
that want to share with me, just email me at uchihaitachi_90[at]

Usually, when the youngest learn alphabet A-Z, they always thought that Z is for 'zebra'. Do you know why? I am a little bit suspicious also. Just ignore it =)

What you should know about zebra?
-Zebra belongs to Equidae family, the family of horse.
-They can live for 40 years in captivity.
-predators : lion, hyenas, hunting dogs, leopards and cheetahs.
-There are three types of zebras which is two in East Africa and one in South Africa.
East Africa:
-Burchell's zebra also known as plain or common zebras
-Grevy's zebra
South Africa:
-Equus zebra (the mountain zebra)

Zebra live in family groups. When one zebra being attacked by their enemies, the other zebras will face the predators and watch it. They are ready to bite and attack the predators. If one of the family members injured, the rest will encircle it to protect the zebra from being attack again.

There are no two or more people have identical fingerprints. Even they are twins or siblings, the fingerprints will not in the same shape. This cases was similar with the unique stripes pattern on zebras body. No zebras has exactly the same stripes.

Some interesting facts about zebras:
- the Grevy's zebra named after former French president, Jules Grévy who was in power from 1879 until 1887.
- zebras can recognized the other zebras due to the different stripes patterns on their bodies.
- mountain zebras, the expert climbers, take a dust bath almost on a daily basis.
-the zebras coat are very shiny which helps reflect the heat of the sun off them.

Take some times to think about this statements:

Does the white stripes on black or black stripes on white? Or should i ask what is the actual background color of zebra body? Is it white or black? Think about it =)
