Dropped in at Sungei Buloh last Sunday morning during neap tide in the hope to catch sight of otters and to see if there were any illegal drift nets set near the river mouth of Sungei Buloh. Like this photo taken on one of my previous trips.
Instead of seeing poachers, this was what greeted me. Two huge barges with excavators on them. Could it be there are plans to construct more floating fish pens? If that happens what will become of the otters? The fish pens stocked with captive fish will be tempting tempting for the otters. Will the fish farmers end up killing the otters?
Standing on the platform, I was between the large monitor and the little crocodile. I wondered if the monitor picked up the scent of the little guy and would I witness the monitor kill and eat the crocodile (a role reversal as a large crocodile was last seen killing and eating a monitor). Lucky for the croc, the monitor didn't like my presence and turned away.
I left the little crocodile sitting quietly in the water as I headed off to my next destination.
