I was really excited when I learned that armadillos were native to Savannah. Finally to live among armored mammals! The excitement was short lived when it became clear that the only evidence I would see of my chitinous friends would be on the side of the road. I guess, like the knights of olde, the added protection comes at the price of speed.
But now, I find that one of my all-time favorite animals of all time is native to Singapore! We might be hiking through the nature preserve and run into a pangolin!
I've already spotted geckos in the serviced apartment! I was expecting geckos and I knew there were monkeys on the island, but pangolins! Oh and fruit bats!
