The Kent Ridge Kampong

A quick walk in Kent Ridge Park late into the night. Saw more lovebirds than bugs in this well manicured park!

Victor said that he used to live there, where it used to be a kampong. Hard to imagine that with what it looks like today.

Squash Bug? (Coreidae) - DSC_1331 #1 Mating pair of bugs. Could be broad-headed bug or squash bug. Didn't have the top view to verify.

Squash Bug? (Coreidae) - DSC_1357 #2 Closer view on the one that was busy sucking

DSC_1335 #3 Large beetle about 2.5cm long. Saw a few of them at this size, contented with nibbling on leaves.

DSC_1338 #4 Up close to its face!

Robberfly (Asilidae) - DSC_1363 #5 An orange robberfly. The rest of the group found at least 3 others, but all flew away before it was my turn to shoot. :P

Larva of Orange Awlet (Burara harisa consobrina) - DSC_1372 #6 Beautiful caterpillar. Larva of the Orange Awlet (Burara harisa consobrina). Information on the butterfly here.

Larva of Orange Awlet (Burara harisa consobrina) - DSC_1380 #7 Face of the cat. Wonder if the locations of the spots have anything related to feng shui... lol

Caterpillar - DSC_1401 #8 Another caterpillar, with a strikingly sharp and long tail. Not sure of ID though.

Changeable Lizard (Calotes versicolor) - DSC_1407 #9 Found several of these lizards. Appeared dull brown initially, but turned out to be yellow

Changeable Lizard (Calotes versicolor) - DSC_1440 #10 Another lizard. This had a slight orange hue.

Huntsman Spider (Sparassidae) - DSC_1418 #11 Huntsman Spider doing some tai chi. Spotted this fella running around on a pile of dead leaves. The reflection from its eyes gave its location away.

Huntsman Spider (Sparassidae) - DSC_1421 #12 Up close with the hairy guy
