mondaymorgue Apologies for the lack of updates over the weekend, but I was busy with (and also recuperating after) Day 1 of #wowwildwest2015! Many of the visitors learnt about the mammals of Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, and while they didn't really get to see that many mammals on the guided walk (besides a fleeting glimpse of a squirrel and some roosting fruit bats), they did find out more about some of the species found in the reserve, as well as the signs that we can use as clues to their presence. Kudos to all my colleagues for their hard work in making this a success, and thanks to @s0undasleep for showing her support by attending the activities as well. Stay tuned for information about the next 3 installments!

Here are some photos of mammals that can be found in Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. Note that not all of these carcasses were found within Sungei Buloh, just that they belong to species known to be present in the area.

mondaymorgue Making plans for this weekend? Not sure where to bring your family? Take them out to the Wow Wild West! A celebration of the wildlife of Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, taking place over four Saturdays from 29th August to 19th September, we've got plenty of activities for our visitors. Each weekend has a different theme, focusing on a different group of animals - the first one happening tomorrow will be about the mammals of Sungei Buloh, from adorable otters to inquisitive squirrels, from elusive wild boar to curious macaques, and a variety of other wild and furry critters.

Experience nature with our guided walks in the nature reserve, led by yours truly. Find out more about some of our fascinating fauna with a series of talks. Learn about some of the methods used to study wildlife, and get hands-on experience through the wildlife workshops. Go wild at our very special photobooth, come up with your own captions for some photos of wildlife, or have your photo taken by motion-triggered camera traps while pretending to be a wild animal in the forest! Make bookmarks and badges, have your face and hands painted, and more!

Join us tomorrow at the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve Visitor Centre, 60 Kranji Way, S(739453), from 9am to 3pm. If you can't make it tomorrow, hope you can still come down for any of the other 3 weekends, and what's more, you still have a chance to sign up for the walks and workshops taking place on those dates. See you at Wow Wild West!

mondaymorgue Mozambique Tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) @ 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 Eggs of Clouded Monitor (Varanus nebulosus) (?) @ Bukit Drive

A pair of eggs was found on the road, close to the carcass. Were they forced out of the monitor lizard's body when it was struck by a vehicle?

  •   artistivanchew Instagram should have a customisable Like button for your feed. I'd rename the button as "Compassion" or "RIP" :) Science may not allow for sentimentality, I know. Still, it's hard for me to hit a Like button for this. I'm over-thinking this... 2d
