The Samar Tarictic Hornbills (Penelopides samarensis), or simply Samar Hornbill, occur naturally in forests on the islands of Samar, Calicoan, Leyte, and Bohol in the east-central Philippines.
As is the case with all Philippine tarictic hornbills, it has been considered a subspecies of Visayan Tarictic hornbills (Penelopides panini). Alternatively, it is considered a subspecies of the Mindanao Tarictic Hornbill (Penelopides affinis).
The Walsrode Bird Park in Germany is the only place where the bird can be seen outside the Philippines. They have only one male.
