A small selection of our mammals
It has taken a lot of dedication and hard work to create the habitat for our mammals. We have exceeded the requirements by the Department of Natural Resources (DENR) and have constructed a modern, yet simple and safe environment for our animals the visitors. Come and see for yourselves. Below you can click on some of the animals featuring at our farm.
 
Ramses
The Amur or Siberian Tiger [ panthera tigris altaica ] Click for Slide Show Feature

The Siberian (or Amur) tiger lives mostly in eastern Russia. A few are found in northeastern China and northern North Korea.

Tigers live in thick forests or areas with tall grasses to hide in and plenty of prey to eat. They don't like the open grasslands lions live in. Most kinds of tigers live where it is warm but Siberian tigers live where it gets very cold.

Where do they live ?
Male tigers live alone and do not share their land or "territory" with other tigers. The size of a tiger's territory depends on how much prey there is to eat. For example, in some parts of India where there is plenty of prey, a male tiger only needs eight to sixty square miles.

In Sumatra, where there is less prey, a male tiger may need as much as 150 square miles. And in Siberia, where there is little prey to be found, male tiger territories are as large as 400 square miles.
Diet

Tigers hunt by stalking (sneaking up) on their prey rather than running after it like lions or cheetahs. Tigers hunt alone. Hunting in a pack would be hard in thick forests and grasslands.

Their prey consists of a variety of different animals, such as deer, wildboar, birds, fish and humans.

You might think tigers hate water because they are cats. Not only do tigers drink water, but they sometimes like to take a cool bath in ponds or rivers. They are also good swimmers.
Reproduction

Mating is usually restricted to winter months. Gestation about 3.5 months, 3-4 cubs weighing about 2.2 pounds each are born blind. They follow the female after about 8 weeks, hunt independently by about 18 months, disperse at 2-2.5 years and mature at 3-4 years. The Tiger's life span about 15 years, longer in captivity.
Man Eaters

Although tiger attacks on humans are unusual, they do occur. Because the human population of Asia is rising, farmers and loggers are begining to use areas where tigers live.

This causes increasing conflicts between tigers and human. It is thought that most tigers who eat humans are sick or injured and unable to kill their usual prey.

Once they have acquired a taste for human beings, however, they will in all likelihood continue to kill them.
Size and Weight

Male Siberian tigers grow up to 3.3 meters (10' 9") long. Male Siberian tigers weigh up to 300 kilograms (660 pounds). Females Siberian tigers are smaller, about 2.6 meters (8 1/2 feet) from head to tail. Female Siberian tigers weigh about100 to 167 kilograms (200 to 370 pounds).
 
Philippine Deer
The Philippine Brown Deer [cervus mariannus]

This Deer is originally restricted to the Philippines but was later introduced into the Marianna Islands. It can be found throughout most of the country.

Once common, it is now rare due to hunting and habitat loss except in very isolated areas. It can be recognised easily by its hoof prints (bakas ng usa) and by the off cut shoots that it leaves behind after feeding, which were frequently seen in cassava plantations in forest clearings on Patnanungan.

Where do they live ?
It stays in localities in the interior where there are extensive areas still covered with forests especially dense primary and secondary forests and up to about 1,500 meters above sea level in transition mid-mountain-mossy type forest.

The deer feeds in grassland areas preferably close to the edges of forests, and when disturbed, will immediately run towards the dense forest growth for cover.
 
Macaques
The Crab-eating Macaque [macaca fascicularis]

The Crab-eating Macaque [macaca fascicularis] is native to South East Asia. It is also called the Cynomolgus Monkey or Long-tailed Macaque and forms the genus Macaca of Old World monkey. Aside from humans (genus Homo), the macaques are the most widespread primate genus, ranging from northern Africa to Japan.
Nineteen macaque species are currently recognised, and they include some of the monkeys best known to non-zoologists, such as the Rhesus Macaque (as the Rhesus Monkey).
Once common, it is now rare due to hunting and habitat loss except in very isolated areas.

Where do they live ?
It can be recognised easily by its hoof prints (bakas ng usa) and by the off cut shoots that it leaves behind after feeding, which were frequently seen in cassava plantations in forest clearings on Patnanungan. It is used extensively in medical experiments, in particular those connected with Neuroscience is a field of study which deals with the structure, function, development, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology and pathology of the nervous system.

The study of behavior and learning is also a division of neuroscience.
A space traveller

Before humans were launched into space, several animals, including numerous monkeys, were used to investigate the biological effects of space travel. The United States launched monkey flights primarily between 1948 and 1961 with one flight in 1969 and one in 1985. France launched two monkey space flights in 1967. The Soviet Union and Russia launched monkeys between 1983 and 1996.

Most monkeys were anesthetized before lift-off. Thirty-two monkeys flew in the space program, each had only one mission. Numerous back-up monkeys also went through the programs but never flew. Monkeys from several species were used, including rhesus, cynomolgus, squirrel, and Philippine monkeys as well as pigtailed macaques.
Crab-eating Macaques are born with black fur, but the fur turns to a yellow-green, grey-green, or reddish-brown shade as they grow. They have dark snouts, and bluish abdominal skin. They live in groups of between 20 to 60 individuals.

Generally there are about 2.5 adult females for every adult male. They live for about four years in the wild, but in captivity have been known to live for up to 38 years.
 
Wild Boar
The Wild Boar [sus scrofa]

The Wild Boar is the wild ancestor of the domesticated pig . It lives in woodlands in central Europe , the Mediterranean regions, across southern Asia and as far as Indonesia .

Animals similar to the wild boar include the warthog of Africa and the peccary or javelina of the American Southwest; but these animals do not share the pig's taxonomic genus.
Wild Boars can reach up to 440 lb (200 kg) and can be up to 6 feet (1.8 m) long. If surprised or cornered they may become aggressive and can cause injury with their tusks. However, this is quite rare and usually only occurs if a sow feels the need to defend her piglets.
