Fishing Cat Trail
The Fishing Cat Trail simulates a nighttime trek through the jungles of Singapore. Here, you can expect to see native species of animals that either used to or are still roaming our forests today.
As your multi-sensory journey continues, keep your nose up for a whiff of a popcorn-like aroma coming from a nearby habitat; that is the natural scent of the binturongs or bear cats. Moving ahead in the darkness, listen out for the sound of Indian gharials feeding in the shallow waters of their marsh habitat. You’ll also get to see the barking deer, the pint-sized greater and lesser mouse deer, small-clawed otters as well as the curious slow loris.
Next to the pangolins, is a calm and quiet village house. This is where you can spot the common palm civets trail along ropes and branches. These cat-like critters are considered pests due to their pungent secretion. Read up on how one neighbourhood in Singapore dealt with their civet issue from the informational posters at the exhibit.
Travel deeper and you’ll find yourself in the marshlands where a family of pelicans, marsh birds, flying foxes and more await you.
