Philippines animals are a whole new world when it comes to animals for us expats. The main concerns are how dangerous they are to us and our families, we come from a country were about the worse thing that can happen is a dog bit and even that is not much to worry about. 

In the Philippines rabies is a huge problem and something you should always keep in mind when dealing with Philippines animals. Other diseases that are hardly herd of in the UK are common in Philippines animals.

There are also deadly animals in the Philippines, for example the Philippines Cobra is the most deadly Cobra in the world. The Box jellyfish is also deadly so even swimming can be deadly. 

On top of that there is the poor treatment of animals that comes as a shock when you first arrive.
