Remark

There are various ecology resources and Hygrophytes.
Hurt or orphaned animals are sheltered in the designated area within the ecological park.

  • Sphedanolestes impressicollis
    Insect species

    The color of the body is glossy black with yellow patterns. The head is small, long and black. The compound eyes are black with lateral grooves. The mouthpart is upside down like a hook so that it does not fall out once it is stuck. After devouring a prey, it hides the stinger on the mouthpart to the belly. It usually folds the mouth back and hides the stinger in the groove; but when it finds a game, it rapidly reveals its stinger and stings the prey with it. It carries the prey around with its stinger inside until it finishes eating the prey.

  • Synurus (Surichi)
    Plant

    It grows in sunny or lightly shaded areas where the soil is fertile. Its length is 40-100 cm. Although not many people celebrate Dano (Korean holiday celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month) these days, it used to be a huge national holiday. The rice cake that was cooked on Dano is called, Suri-dduk or Surichui-jeolpyeon. Dano is often called as Surit-nal, because the rice cake, Suri-dduk, is one of the representative foods for Dano.

  • Bridal wreath
    Plant species

    Bridal wreath is a deciduous shrub tree that is commonly seen in mountainous areas, grasslands, and rivers across the country except for Jeju Island. Every other year, white flowers bloom from the branches on April. The snow white flower is also called as nunssariggot (roughly translating to “snow bush flower” in Korean)

  • Weasel
    Animal

    Having rats as the main source of food, weasels have long bodies and short legs. In summer, they eat fruits such as mulberries and cherries, and insects. They are active day and night. The male is twice as large as the female. Just like other Mustelidae family, they defecate long and thin feces on rocks.

  • Crayfish
    Crustacean

    It has relatively wide rostrum and flat cephalothorax. The male’s first swimmerets have round tips which is different from the allied species, Manchurian crayfish. It usually lives under the fallen leaves or rocks in cold mountainous streams. It is only found in South Korea, North Korea and some regions in China.

  • Phaneroptera nigroantennata
    Insect species

    It is about 28-35 mm long and it is green. It is similar to the Phaneroptera falcata, but it has distinctive features – black antennae and black back joints. The front wings are short and narrow, and have a tangled mesh. The compound eyes are more prominent than Phaneroptera falcata’s.

  • Marten
    Animal

    Its body is yellow but its head, legs, and tail are black. It usually preys on mice and squirrels, but it also hunts young Chinese water deer and Korean hares. Since it is a good climber, it eats persimmons and gooseberries. Unlike weasels, its feces are often twisted. It likes honey so it attacks beehives sometimes; so that, the feces contain wasps, bees or persimmon seeds and this differentiates the Martens from the weasels.

  • Mole
    Animal

    The mole’s toes on the front paws are developed to efficiently break the soil. The eyes are atrophied so they look like dots; however, the auditory sense is well developed. It is good at finding earthworms and sluggards with their sharp nose and it enjoys eating invertebrates. It lives throughout Korea except Jeju Island and Ulleung Island; it likes where the grass and soil are rich. It moves horizontally in underground, and their inhabitation can be examined by the tunnels.

  • Azure-winged Magpie
    Bird

    It is a resident bird that is common throughout the Korean peninsula. It is 37cm long. The head is black; the back is gray; the wattle, chin and throat are white; the belly is light grey; the coverts and tail are light blue; and the beak and legs are black.

  • Chinese muddy loach
    Fish

    The body is about 20cm long and slightly flat. It has 3 pairs of barbels, and the longest barbel is about four times bigger than the pupil. The body is yellowish brown; the back is darker and the belly is lighter. It inhibits in mud floors of creeks or agricultural waterway and is omnivorous. It spawns from April to June. A male loach wraps its body around a female’s body to pressure the belly to induce spawning on a rainy day.

  • Neptis pryeri
    Insect species

    This species is widely distributed in South Korea with a large population. It is also found in Japan, Taiwan, China and Siberia. Neptis Pryeri goes through metamorphosis biannually. The first metamorphosis is observed from late May to late June; the second metamorphosis is observed from late July to early October. Many are found on the sunny edge of the forest in groups. It flies joyfully above the shrubs and sometimes they gather in flowers such as sangsuris.

  • Korean weigela
    Plant species

    It is a broad-leaved tree that grows 2 to 3 m high in sunny place at the foot of mountains. The branch splits into many branches at the bottom of the stem. The bark is dark gray with well-developed lenticels and it cracks into pieces when it gets old. The young branches are light brown and they have fine hair. The leaves grow in opposite leaf-arrangement, and barely have petioles.

  • Dahurian clustered bellflower
    Plant Species

    Dahurian clustered bellflower is distributed all over the country, but mainly in middle northern areas and in the regions of Jiri Mountain over 500 meters altitude. It is a perennial plant that grows in lightly shaded grass fields with many fallen leaves and is 40 to 100 cm tall. The plant has a lot of hair on its entire body, and the leaves are 5 to 10 cm long and 1 to 3 cm wide.

  • Kestrel
    Bird

    It is around 30 to 33cm in length. It propagates in urban buildings on rare occasions, but mostly it propagates in mountains using the nests of common buzzard or sparrow hawk. It also lays eggs on a rock of a cliff or a pit on a mud wall; when it does, it lays 4-6 eggs at a time. The incubation period is about 28 to 31 days, and the brooding takes about 27 to 33 days.
