16 Nov (Thu): Colugo Watch at Bukit Batok Nature Park

Join Cicada Tree Eco Place to see the Colugo, one of the strangest animals of our world. It is a gliding mammal. It has a skin membrane stretching from its neck to its webbed fingers, to its webbed toes, and to the tip of its long tail. As you can imagine, when gliding it looks like an opened umbrella in the air! It also has an adorable face, with a pink nose and ears, and huge eyes to help it see in the dark.
Singapore is one of the very few places in the world that you can easily see a colugo on any night that you go looking for it. A population lives in this mature park and we should be able to find some. Once our colugos have all glided away into the forest, we will walk the paths here to look for other critters of the night, such as owls, nightjars, bats, and a multitude of lovely creepy-crawlies.
