Another Trip to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

Yo people. Its quite long since i posted anything.
I went to B.T.N.R with my friend again today. At first, i thought we would not find anything as usual. But my hopes rose when i saw a gliding lizard, most likely a Black-bearded Gliding lizard. We saw a strange insect too
Then we went to the summit, where we found a type of caterpillar. We walked down the hill by the other road. We saw a 'squirrel' but at closer look, it was actually a Common Tree Shrew. Then, along the path, we saw..... a snake! It was a type of keelback and after research, concluded the it was a Spotted Keelback. It was eating a frog! Most likely the Dark-sided Chorus Frog.
On our way down, we spotted a juvenile Wagler's Pit Viper. Wow! 2 snakes in a row.
Today was a complete success.

Trip to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

Today released the Malayan Water Monitor into West Coast Park, Marshland. Took picture of it before leaving.
Took a bus to Jurong East interchange and took bus 66 to BTNR(Bukit Timah Nature Reserve) . We missed the stop and end up walking one round before taking bus 170 to BTNR.

Started our journey instantly. Found a few spiders, a weird moth, a Giant Forest ant and a cicada. My friend saw a tail that might belong to a rat but did not see the whole body and it ran away.
We went a long way before ending our journey. We were dead tired and could barely stand. I bought myself a drink and my friend an ice-cream.
Then we walked around Hindhede Nature Park before leaving.

A Surprise

Today went to school...

During recess, my friend and i found a baby Malayan Water monitor, a common asian water monitor lizard, in between a narrow hole. Surprised why its in our school. Tried to get it out but failed... Not enough time.

Could not wat for the deeparaya concert to end.

At last, after 3h of waiting, the concert ends. We went to the place and found the monitor in another narrow hole. We tried to get it out but could not.

A few cleaners saw us and help us get it out. Wow! The guy even dare to hold the monitor.

We brought it home and put it into a tank. Fed it some frogs.

Will be releasing it soon.

Today's "Crop"

Today went to school, enjoyed some post-exam activities.

After school, stayed back for a while to do some research on animals in the computer...

Then my friend and i went to do some hunting(looking for animals). The only excitement was when i found a snake skin near a tree. Suspected a common wolf snake.

We search frantically for the snake. Found it!

After that went to tuition......

Feel free to look at the picture of the snake i've taken.
