Taipei City, Taiwan –


Many people are quite curious about animal ecology. A considerable number of different and rare animal species are widespread on five different continents. Such as pandas in Szechuan, mainland China, koalas in Australia have invariably attracted tons of tourists to pay a visit. Manado is the capital of the North Sulawesi province of Indonesia. In addition to possess magnificent marine resources, tourists will also be able to see the rare tarsier.

Tarsiers are all small animals with enormous eyes. The body ranges around 10 centimetres in length. The weight weights around 100~120 kilograms. Tarsiers have very elongated and strong hind limbs, which are used for jumping and climbing.

All tarsier species are nocturnal in habit. Tourists will be able to see four pairs of tarsiers in a private zoo in Manado. Their lovely appearance often causes tourists’ attention. Local tour guide pointed out that most tarsiers are monogamous, so if one of them died, the other will end sorrowfully. As a result, tarsiers usually will pair up.

In the private zoo, visitors can also see various kinds of animal species, such as babyrousa, CUS CUS, mini cow, etc. Most of endemic species in Manado are Oceania species, but not entirely the same. Some endemic species have enriched the land-based tourism in Manado.

潛進美娜多/美娜多眼鏡猴 模樣討喜

李傳溎/台北市

  許多人對動物生態都相當好奇,地球上的五大洲中,更常有不同的珍貴動物,大陸四川的熊貓、澳洲的無尾熊等,無不吸引許多遊客前往,位於印尼北蘇拉威西的美娜多,除了擁有絕佳的海洋資源外,在這裡我們更可造訪少有的眼鏡猴。

  身長只有10公分左右,體重約100~120公克的眼鏡猴,滿月般的眼睛模樣特別可愛,眼鏡猴指頭的前端鈍而圓扁,有著吸盤般的功能,腳趾的二、三趾為勾爪,餘為平爪,前肢短小強壯,後肢修長有力,適合跳躍前進。

  可人的眼鏡猴屬於夜行性動物,其習性不易飼養,在美娜多私人動物園裡,可以看到4對飼養的眼鏡猴,牠們可愛的模樣,常引起遊客的好奇駐足,當地導遊表示,眼鏡猴擁有一夫一妻制,而如果其中一隻死亡,他們會鬱鬱寡歡而終,所以眼鏡猴通常都是都是成雙成對的。

  私人動物園裡還可以看到其他不同的動物,如有著四隻彎曲牙齒突出的鹿豬、身形像雞的巨足鳥、袖珍牛、CUS CUS(有袋動物)等,在印尼美娜多的動物物種多為大洋洲物種,卻不全然相同,特有的物種,讓美娜多陸上觀光更加豐富。(攝影/洪榕)
