Surprise in the DragonFly

Table of Contents

● 1 minutes read

The Mashpi Dragonfly is an excellent example of capturing the rarest moments. The dragonfly allows you to see the forest from a completely different perspective. New species of plants have already been recorded from the dragonfly.

And I say this because it is my first close encounter with this species of Tropical River Otter, which were swimming upstream, surely in search of food or a place to reproduce.

Local people believe that the otters’ eyes are diamonds, making them vulnerable to hunting. Additionally, they are excellent indicators of the water quality in rivers. This tells us that our Laguna River is in its proper balance.
