This is a Badjao child. They are nomads who live on boats and travel by the sea. They freedive to hunt for fish and the like for food or to sell. Their eyes have adapted by constricting their pupils so that they can see clearer underwater. They also have a larger than normal spleen that makes them stay longer underwater with one breath of air. These genetic mutations are what make this tribe survive in the environment in which they live.
