We then run into a binturong, or commonly known as a bearcat. Despite its nickname, binturongs are not related to either cats or bears. After the forest floor, we go to the cold, damp caves that make up much of the Philippine landscape. In the caves, we’ll find some creepy crawlers like tarantulas and more scorpions.
