A night in Nee Soon swamps

When:  February 2015           Weather:   23C

We explored the Nee Soon Swamp area along the water pipe hoping to find some snakes ….we didn’t find any snakes that night but I found other quite fascinating critters ….

the pretty green snail was seen on the pipe itself

So although the herping was not successful, the Nee Soon swamp forest yielded many other interesting creatures….
