Flying Lemur
The said, zoo is famous of its distinctive animal the so called Kagwang. Kagwang is a Visayan term for Philippines Flying Lemur. This endangered Kagwang or Philippine Flying Lemur (Cynocephalus volans) can be found in the wilderness of Bohol, Samar, Leyte and some parts of Mindanao. Although called a flying lemur, it cannot fly and is not a lemur. The Philippine flying lemur is arboreal and usually resides in primary and secondary forests. However, some wander into coconut, banana, and rubber plantations. It is also a nocturnal animal and it looks like a half bat half rat.

Aside from Kagwang, Daks and Gams is popular to its Pawikan, where-in you can touch it while the Pawikans are in the pond.  Pawikan or simply Sea turtle are abundant in Bohol but endangered Species. Sea turtles or marine turtles are turtles that inhabit all of the world's oceans except the Arctic. But Bohol is very blesses because Bohol is most preferred habitat of the said specie.

The first time I went in this park, when I was in grade six as part of the Field trip. The latest time was just year 2010 and it was very different, entrance fee is php 20 only per person. When I entered, it seems that the place was not maintained well, there were cobwebs in the cages of the animals. The surrounding is not that clean compared to the first time I visit the place. Perhaps due to the numbers of zoo in Bohol are now operating, “Daks and Gams”
