Jewel click beetles (Campsosternus auratus)

They have relatively hard bodies, with the first two sections of their segmented body being flexible, and they can move these parts (head and front legs) without bringing any change to the rest of the body. They snap or click by joining the spine with the corresponding notch on the abdominal segment and make a clicking sound when the spine is released, and, when the beetle is on its back, the beetle is tossed in the air
- Jewel bugs are from the ‘Scutelleridae’ family, which are true bugs that have mouths that suck, rather than beetles that have mouths that chomp.

- Jewel bugs are related to stink bugs, as they can produce a smell when they are irritated.

- Jewel bugs moult, which is when they shed their exoskeleton to grow bigger.

Brown rat snake( non venomous)
Coelognathus erythrurus
Rat snakes are a non-venomous type of snake and feed mostly on rats and other small animals. It kills its prey by wrapping its body around it, squeezing the animal until its heart stops.

The snake is endemic to the island of Luzon and is found mostly in forests edges, fields, or farmlands. Although their numbers in the wild are stable, they are often killed or captured by people when they happen to venture into populated areas. RA 9147, however, penalizes the killing or harming of wild animals.
