Long-tailed Macaque sighted on a tree.


Nothing out of the ordinary, except that the tree is growing here… on the left is a hawker center and on the right (not shown in photo) is a petrol kiosk.

On Wednesday, 17 July 2009, Hubby and I were enjoying our favourite fish soup at Sembawang Hill Food Centre when he spotted a lone Long-tailed Macaque up on a tree. As we always roam the nature reserves and see macaques all the time, he thought nothing of it until he realised that we were at a hawker center – not in the reserves! He quickly whipped out his camera and took a few shots of the macaque.

The macaque looking for food scraps – tearing plastic bags that it took out from a dustbin nearby.
