Malayan water monitor is spotted basking on the hot sand near the coastal forest. Fortunately Uncle Ben is there with his long lens to take a good photo of it.
Oriental pied hornbill and NParks' highly successful efforts to provide artificial nest boxes for them.
wild boar and babies, now mostly losing their watermelon stripes. We didn't see Grandma wild boar, but her two older daughters were there and now we think the babies belong to her daughters and not to Grandma. Hopefully, Grandma is ok, perhaps off looking after new babies? Everyone had a great time taking photos of and with the wild boar! It is possible for people to have safe and enriching interaction with wild boar!
