mondaymorgue Unidentified Fish @ Pasir Ris

This dried fish was found on the ground below a tree that was occupied by several Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) nests. It’s likely that this had been dropped by one of the herons.

mondaymorgue Today is World Tapir Day! World Tapir Day exists to raise awareness about the species of tapir that inhabit Central and South America and Southeast Asia, and to raise funds to purchase land to protect it from human encroachment.

There are four (possibly five) living species of tapir, but only one species lives in this part of the world. The Malayan Tapir (Tapirus indicus) inhabits the forests of tropical Southeast Asia, but was always thought to be absent from Singapore. However, there have been claims of tapirs living on the island of Pulau Ubin.
The only definitive proof though came about in 1986, when a tapir fell into a granite quarry and died, presumably from the fall. Unfortunately, the carcass was not salvaged, and this photo, taken by a resident, is the only piece of evidence to show that at least one Malayan Tapir lived (and died) in Pulau Ubin.

To this day, there are no other official records of Malayan Tapir on Pulau Ubin, or anywhere else in Singapore. It's possible that this particular tapir, and any other tapir that may have lived in Pulau Ubin, were strays that swam across from Johor.

Unfortunately, habitat loss and hunting are severe threats to the continued survival of Malayan Tapir elsewhere in the region. (Photo from the Pulau Ubin Stories blog: http://pulauubinstories.blogspot.com/) #WorldTapirDay #MalayanTapir #tapir #mammal #PulauUbin
