800 meter forest at Mt. Banahaw de Lucban  The low elevation forest here is very rich in species, and also in things to bite, sting, and slash.  Mosquitos, land leeches, and stinging trap jaw ants are common, and plants include Pandanus with saw-edged leaves and spiny, climbing rattan palms that grab you with thorns.
